Now here is one of those head scratching albums that no doubt will have you questioning my sanity as to why I post it. For those of you not in the know, Crispin Glover is an actor that has had tons of interesting performances throughout his career. Definitely one of those kult actors that creates some of the most bizarre yet classic performances to be seen on Sinema. (We hope to post one of his films here soon.) But here for your listening displeasure Xul presents to you his solo album. A pomp romp of twisted pop tunes co-written with the fine folks of Barnes & Barnes (think Fish heads). What you get are a few originals, a couple of covers (including great Charles Manson and Lee Hazelwood covers), as well as some spoken word renditions from his books. Definitely file this as one of those "open minded" Xulborg posts, as it's definitely nowhere near the metal or gloom and doom laden spectrum we tend to focus on. But there is definitely a twisted mind at work here... Which is why Xul adores the man's work.
