... like a Jim Woodring story in which the characters are, instead of enigmas, normal people who have normal conversations, except they look like defective animals -- tossed into a cruel, toxic, ugly, apocalyptic industrial landscape by the same God who won't give Manhog a break ... If Manhog could speak and had a meaningless paper-pushing job (and were uglier), he might be the dickless divorcé in the main story here. Cartoonists are always writing about ineffectual men who are destroyed flesh-shells at the mercy of indifferent women. Is it because it's HILARIOUS? Michael DeForge is funny with this shtick, anyhow, and his cartooning is rhythmic & relentless & circular like a krautrock jam. Give the band more shrooms, DeForge, keep this song going.
