Grifters - Eureka ep

Label: Shangri-La
Year: 1995

They don't really make em like this anymore. And by "they" I, of course mean the Illuminati and the Bilderberg Group. Well, them and the Jewish bankers who secretly run the world's finances, holding us all hostage to their diabolical whims, mere puppets in a high stakes charade of New World Order.
Did you know that in the 1990's these shadowy convivials sought to quell anti-American sentiment in Western Europe by infiltrating independent rock music and introducing the "lo-fi" phenomenon? It's true! Look it up! I mean, why else does Guided By Voices utilize traditional Mason symbology in their album art? Huh?! Why?! And why do you suppose Pavement pay lip service to the Ante-Nicene clergy in the song "Summer Babe"? Merely coincidence? I think not!
Look deeper friends, the truth is out there. Oh, it's out there, and it's meeting every summer at a remote camp in the Redwoods to plot global financial holocaust for the working class.
Or, you can go on thinking this record is just a simple fractured pop collection with nary a sinister intent. Maybe that's what you need to believe in order to sleep at night.

Well, you've given us plenty to muse upon there. It's all starting to make sense now. I just knew Pollard was up to something.

Perhaps there is a direct correlation between the current wave of thriving lo-fi bands - No Age, Times New Viking, and the like - and the global financial crisis?

I like a lot of those bands though... I think I'll ignore the evidence and forge ahead in blissful ignorance. There's no saving some people.
