Missing-CoverHippopotamus – Hippopotamus – Cassette
(Grass Records)
The first thing that came to mind when I heard the first song on this cassette was Monty Python. Not the whole series, just the skits that had an Englishman in the street unbuckled rain boots, pants rolled up to his knees and a rag tied on his head like a hat. Well, if you’ve seen those skits, that’s how the vocalist sounded, everything else was irrelevant. None of the other songs sounded like that, most of them were done talk-sing like but not monotone. The music was pretty much rock, with a standard rhythm section, but very innovative guitar over it all. The guitar was like a combination of Brainiac, the Pixies, Prince and Steve Via (I bet you didn’t expect that, did you).
- Grog Mutant (1996)
