Joe Stumble just beat me to the punch on one of the records I was gonna post next, so while I fight to work my way out of a tailspin, here's some fucking Todd Rundgren for ya.
I forget exactly what year it was-- '85 or '86 most likely-- but I heard this single in Walt's store one day and bought it right then. Hey, a buck eighty-five's a buck eighty-five, right? Both songs on this 45 are from an album where Todd Rundgren made all the musical instrument sounds with his mouth. That's some totally freaky shit right there. Now, there's some Todd Rundgren stuff that's totally great, and then I've heard other stuff of his that's borderline crap (including most of his 70's hits, which kinda sound like Carole King to me), but I friggin' LOVE this single. "Something To Fall Back On" is like the greatest Pringles commercial ever made, and "Lockjaw" has some cool industrial-type noise to it, for a guy who was just using his mouth. Plus Todd Rundgren produced albums for Cheap Trick, XTC, and The New York Dolls, and you don't ever knock that shit, ever.
