Free Kitten - Sentimental Education (2001) Retail CD
Fronted by one of the most influential and significant women on the rock scene, Kim Gorden (bassist and vocalist of Sonic Youth) and also by Julie Cafrtz (Pussy Galore). What can you expect other than blunt, cheeky lyrics and plenty of wailing? Other members include Mark Ibold of Pavement and Yoshimi of the Boredoms. Such a conglomeration of talent should produce something worth buying into, but don’t get too excited. What you get is unpredictable and varied, with an unmistakable Sonic Youth twang. Infact you could be forgiven for mistaking a lot of this material for early Sonic Youth, especiallymore… 'Strawberry milk'. I like ‘Never gonna sleep’, because it's relatively simple and calm with a steady beat and Gorden’s ‘spoilt child’-like voice chipping in every now and then. Completely off the wall tracks include ‘Dr. Spookys spatialized Chinatown express’ which is made up entirely of mixing and beats, strangely enough I've actually taken a liking to it. Also ‘Daddy longlegs’ giving out random guitar strumming coupled with a horn. This is amusing for a while but goes on far too long. The sound of guitar feedback on some tracks is strong and fuzzy, purposefully giving the sense of overall artiness and far from polished material. Not one of my favourite albums, nevertheless it’s entertaining. At times they appear to be trying a little too hard to not give a ****. Recommended for those who like their music far from obvious and perhaps a little twisted (the title track is entirely instrumental and over 12 minutes long) and those who refuse commercial music and embrace everything else. A definate must for Gorden lovers.
