Yes kids the end is getting near. . .well at least to Five Iron Frenzy.
I recently purchased Five Iron’s Cheese’s of Nazareth.” (If you are a long time fan this is a must). This 33 track yes I did say 33 tracks CD is full of demos live screw ups and the zany antics of FIF. For being a HUGE and long time fan of these guys this disc really shows how much the band has progressed to be where they are today.
The linear notes rock! Reese and Keith give you insights and little stories of how some of the songs were created while poking fun at each other. If you pay attention to the CD you will here some songs that made it to the album but needed a few minor adjustments (such as new lyrics).
This isn’t a CD you could probably listen to a lot. To me its kinda hard varying from great recordings to terrible recordings way back in the day sometimes I even grit my teeth in pain. . .but its worth it. . .it’s FIVE IRON. Have fun listening and keep on skankin away.
