Someone compared Quit Your Dayjob to Devo and this fits quite well. I mean, look at a photo of these geeks in their training suits! For those abot to nerd we salute you... The music with its mixture of dancable electronic and rudimentary rock elements is also not so far off from where Devo once were and what definitely unites them is their strange sense of humor. Only few bands with more pop appeal than Anal Cunt have songs with titles like „pissing on a panda“...
I really like the style of this band but there is a serious problem about this album. Five out of the first six songs are really good. They are tiny little weirdo hits. But the rest of the album is really bad in my eyes. The humor is not funny over album distance and what appears fresh for a good seven minutes gets more worn off with every minute more. A 7“ with all the hits and no filling material would have been a far better record. Maybe humor is not that good a basis for music at all. But I have respect for the way these guys try to break with common genre guidelines yet in the end it is the songs that count. Ambivalent thing that is... [jan]
