Golden Millennium came about when a couple of guys from the 1-4-5s decided to start a one-off glam rock band, recruiting Britt Daniel from Spoon to play bass and releasing this gold vinyl EP on New Year's Eve, 1999.
I've never actually decided if this is really rockin' or not-- by itself it sounds good enough, but then this week when it popped up on my mp3 player coming right after something that had a little more "oomph" to it, it sounded pretty limp, so who knows. Pretty much the same as how the gold vinyl doesn't really look like gold at all, just some other half-assed representation of yellow, or at least that's what I'm figuring. I guess in the end this is sorta rockin', plus it's worth it just to see Britt Daniel all tarted up like the cover of "Look What The Cat Dragged In"-- that shit's pretty funny.
