Leader Joel Tong has compiled a massive tome of everything his band -- formed in the off days of Vancouver noise punks the Doers and Black Rice (not to be confused with NY experimental DFA troopers Black Dice) -- ever did with a record button. There are extensive collections of grainy 8-track takes in which Tong thrashes his acoustic under throaty vocal assaults, varied diversions from melodic 4/4 punk, and lo-fi, guttural indie rock. The only thing missing is some disciplined editing. There are some good songs, but digging for them in this 36-song double-album heap is daunting, to say the least. Depending on Tong's intentions, this is either an intimidating introduction or a self-indulgently elaborative farewell. Joel and the Last of the Neighbours hit the Horseshoe Tuesday (August 8).
