Format: Audio CD
I was at art school in the early 1990s when I encountered this strange recording, at one of several unbearable free-improv noise-fests put on by the LMC* that a pal dragged me along to. This oddity, as mad as it was (and remains) was perfectly pitched for me then, as a tonic to the indulgent and formless noise-puke that constituted all the LMC performances I was unfortunate enough to be party to.

It's clever and silly, and it straddles the three saddles of loving homage, naive pastiche and knowing send-up, ranging from off-kilter big band jazz to retarded country, and taking in numerous other mutant forms of genre, and even some fairly original musical surrealism. Who couldn't love an album with song titles like Fun in The Fundus and Meat Clamp Conduit?

The version of this I have has more tracks than are listed here, possibly because of the inclusion of another Lane recording called Car Radio Jerome, and includes an insert that folds out into a poster comprised of numerous record covers by imaginary bands relating somehow to the weird world of Fred Lane, which all reinvent a kind of National Geographic vibe filtered through Dadaism (all done in US vernacular, but with an unusually dark and sometimes twisted humour); there's sufficient talent and ambition to make it a credible stab at something - and what better from 'the one that cut you'? - whilst it remains ramshackle and unhinged enough to exist firmly outside the orbit of 'normalcy'. And any place described by such a horrible word is surely best avoided?

The only other review of this here on Amazon UK gets across some of the stylistic info well enough for me not to need or want to add any more.

Whatever happened to Fred Lane? This album from the mid-eighties is an anarchic car crash of creativity with some rare, special moments. OK, it's hit-and-miss, I would be the first to admit it...and often willfully obtuse and self indulgent. The opener starts as a jazzy crooner, but it soon degenrates as a wildly honking dischordant sax takes over. There is a studied amateurishness on much here... but also a fierce commitment to originality, and dark humour.
What's the music like? Harsh sounding lo-fidelity chaotic jive, jazz, sub-rat pack swing, dislocated blues, woeful country, sub-Elvis R&R... you could dance to some of it, but then you probably wouldn't want to.

But then we get to the good stuff: The Man With The Fold Back Ears is a sublimely silly Morriconiesqe parody...very funny indeed. The French Toast Man is about as sick a song as you can imagine, about...well i don't want to spoil it for you, but it's done like a Sesame Street song for five year olds...toe-curling.
All in all, a real rag bag of an album, but worth tracking down for it's few moments of genuine inspiration.

Music to Strangle Goats By 9 Aug. 1999
By atlanteum@earthlink.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Somewhere in an alternate universe, the illegitimate love-child of Charles Manson and Bobby Darin was channelled through the spirit of Elvis... and the result was the music of the Reverend Dr. Fred Lane. "From the One That Cut You" is unquestionably one of finest examples of life-altering dementia ever recorded. I cannot recommend it highly enough. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll flee in stark, raving, Lovecraftian terror. Buy it and beware!

Blow your mind 15 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Both Fred Lane albums compete evenly for the best record released ever. Lane is a true visionary, and pudding.

Trouble for the Lounge Set 21 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is truly one of the most amazing, yet simultaneously most twisted productions in the history of lounge or swing or whatever it's trying to be at the moment. The Rev. Dr. Fred Lane, along with Ron "Pate"'s Debonaires, tackles C&W, surf, lounge, noise, swing, and in all cases manages to do some astounding assault-work. This record is to the Squirrel Nut Zippers/Cherry Poppin' Daddies what Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music" is to Yr. Basic Rock-n-roll. Totally recommended for those with a sense of musical hazard!

A classic of a disturbing and unsettling nature 17 Dec. 1998
By Noah@aminographics.com the man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Reverend Fred Lane, as he was called in days gone by, has lifted us to so high that we're really awfully low. And if that does not make any sense to you than you might begin to understand the twisted nature of this shimmy-disc classic about to be re-released.

Another Five-Star Review 3 May 2010
By N. Gerarde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
... and this album deserves it. There truly is nothing else like it. Yeah, it could sort of almost be described as Beefheart-meets-Bobby Darin, or lounge jazz-on-peyote (many colorful combinations are possible, make yr own, if you feel it necessary) but that only sort of covers it. In reality - or unreality -it is so much more. This is strange-but-catchy, bizarre-but-endearing, discordant-but-tuneful weirdmusic from Tuscaloosa, Alabama (!!), ca. 1975 or so. It happens to be one of my five favorite albums ever. I'm talking EVER-ever, right up there with 'The Nightfly' and the second and third Meat Puppets albums. Oh, yeah. I never get sick of it; that's how I know it's one of my favorites, see.

If you're a strange music junkie, this album is like concentrated crack for your eardrums. One listen to this, and you'll be a happy, sappy son of a gun, sailing the China Sea in your pajamas on a raft, your brains turned to oatmeal. (If you'd heard it, you'd know what I'm talking about.) Buy it!! You knew you wanted to as soon as you laid eyes on that handsome devil on the cover - so what are you waiting for?
