SNMNMNM (S&M & M&M) - Disco Barry (mp3)
The internationally esteemed Tallahassee Democrat calls SNMNMNM's Disco Barry a hilarious, giddy, tongue-in-cheek eulogy for the Disco Era that has the antic, goofball whimsy of early XTC compositions. Antic and goofball, yes, but that description doesn't touch on the way this thing grabs you and pulls you into infatuation on the first listening. It's electrodisco-dancy throughout, but it pauses for a brief harshness when it reminds you that the 70's are over, and ends with a surprise guitar lick that shouldn't fit, but somehow does. Magnificent.
