Hold the phone - do you mean to tell me that the George W. Bush government is corrupt? Is there something morally wrong with the war in Iraq? Why, I had no idea until hearing Trans Am's manipulated George W. Bush sound bites and worrisome helicopters over beats that sound like they were stolen from Peaches. Predictable anti-Bush dogma aside (this is Trans Am's first experiment with politics), I'm feelin' much of the nihilistic hardness of this simple, industrial no-wavey record, the shapeshifting group's seventh, which culminates with a two-minute bonus track of one note played on a synthesizer.
Trans Am joins Bobby Conn for a festive frolic at Lee's Palace Tuesday (June 8).
