Stuffy Shmitt (from the album Cherry available as a self-release) (Bryant Liggett)
It’s a record that’s as funny as it is just kick back entertaining. On his release Cherry, Stuffy Shmitt tosses about comedic lyrical jabs that fit right in with the musical proficiency, dropping a Lounge heavy record with a Punk Rock approach amidst some glorious absurdity. There’s the groovy pace of “The Little Man in The Boat” where Shmitt drops a jealous narrative about the man ‘that takes all the girls away’. Aside from the narrative it’s a cut loaded with hip, instrumental fills and a tropical theme. “Billy Kilowatt” is a driving, Garage Rocker, and “Little Brother” is laid back, loose, psychedelic and funky, with Stuffy Shmitt dipping into Washington D.C. go-go rhythms.
Three songs in and Shmitt is carving his own path, sounding like no-one but himself. That journey continues with the lonely ballad of “Food for the Mosquitos”, the clunky-funky “Radio’s Broken” (complete with voice effects to replicate an old-school AM static) and the cha-cha of “Don’t Forget the Roach”, which is a public service reminder about making sure your scene is clean when crossing the border.
This is a record wonderfully irreverent, closing not surprisingly with polka. It’s a cut that salutes those mornings when men wake with blood rushing to the mid-section, appropriately titled “The Hard on Polka.” (by Bryant Liggett)
