"Cannanes sing 'rock and roll takes you prisoner, sit back, let your chains rattle' but then they're kinda soft and strummy so I guess she's just being a poet... you can trick one of your emocore friends by telling them that Cannanes are really the Cranberries so when you play this he'll cry and then you can punch him in the mouth... Small World Experience are a bit more rock, the song is really cool, plus I think 'procrastination' is a cool word to use in a song... on white vinyl, so don't play this while you're eating chicken." -- original Brushback #4 review
This was the first in Spit and a Half's "Australian Pop Series" from way back when-- I never bought any of the other records in the series, or even any other Small World Experience records even though I think their song here is just about perfect. "Procrastination" pulls off a remarkable low-key delivery ("I never visit but I'm always going right by your house... I don't know why I don't just drop in... I pretend that I'm late to see someone else"), world-class mumblecore in its own right and a small contender for one of my top fifty or so favorite singles sides from that decade... I ripped the Cannanes side, but I'm not all that enthusiastic about it.
