vertigo - self-titled
i was wandering about the local pawn shop the other day...when this caught my eye
and at first i was all like "um...am i seeing things?...am i actually seeing an amphetamine reptile album in a pawn shop?...in this pawn shop?...in this town?"
you see...in the area i live in...how can i put this...let's just say seeing this album in that pawn shop is equal to seeing liberace (then and now) at an nra meeting
know what i mean?
so i did my civic duty and saved this from it's surroundings
something told me that vertigo didn't want to get jiggy with will smith...they didn't want to be next door to toby keith...or have to stare at the backstreet boys any longer...this was not their neighborhood
so the $2.50 was laid upon the counter...and out we went
and i'm going to assume that since you come around SGM every so often...you've already got a grasp on what these folks sound like
and if you're a fan of cover songs...the album opens up with a cover of the song "fire escape" by the australian post-punk band the scientists
so now it's your turn for you to do your civic duty
