Consumer Guide Reviews:

Tanzfeld [Press, 1986]
First a Fan, then sole leader (and member) of a Regiment of Women, this Atlantan has been making art damage seem like fun ever since he put "Nadine" on sideways seven years ago. Not exactly a font of creativity, he sticks "Nadine" on this album along with three more covers, a postmodernistically kitschy instrumental, art-maimed instrumental, and three "original" songs: one called "Nam," one beginning "Mommy, I don't want to be a fascist," and one consisting of movie titles that begin with "I." Inspirational Verse, from his lyrics-provided cover of "Louie, Louie": "A fine little girl a-wait for me--/ Ah cotch a chill: ah! certainly./ Peel the linga: Aranda cone/ (we never divine how Ah make it home)."
