***REISSUED!!! “Released by Bag of Hammers in 1996, this was the SCREAMIN’ MEE-MEES’ second LP, following 1992's self-released Clutching Hand Monster Mitt, itself preceded by a lone EP from 1977—the immortal Live From The Basement. Nude Invisible Foot Phenomenon finds Missouri's premiere poets of basement-rock, low-tech experimentation, and righteous silliness flailing about somewhere between their 1970s STOOPID formula and their first LP's ACID+STOOPID approach. The songs are generally shorter, with more emphasis on the lyrics, but everything's awash in reverb and the clatter rarely pauses. On the other side of the theoretical fence, the eight minutes of ‘3-string classical guitar’ (by drummer JON ASHLINE) and tape manipulation called ‘Chinese Handcuffs’ demonstrates wonderfully how much of the ‘serious’ underground music that got released in the 1990s was cynical, stillborn crap. Whoever decided you can't have a few laughs while you're lookin' for a little space done got theyselves stuck! On the other hand, if you wanna open a frosty one and reclaim your whiteboy d-u-m-b roots, check out ‘Dogfishin',’ ‘The Grand Old Duke Of York’ (storytellin' in the surreal tradition of their '77 classic ‘Max Factor’), or ‘Goin' To A Barbeque.’ But I think I'll grab the bong and take another swim through ‘Smarter,’ a druggy bog up the bum of hierarchies everywhere. It was recorded in England by guitarist BRUCE COLE, with TODD DILLINGHAM and friends. Perhaps the track that best personifies the Screamin' Mee-Mees at this stage is ‘Mesmerizing Donut Glaze,’ which sounds so much like a stoned early 70s FM DJ enraptured by the mere thought of a Krispy Kreme. Now start droolin' and open your ears, music lovers!”—Eddie Flowers. Remastered from the original tapes.
