Thanks to Rodney Anonymous Sr. refers to the fact that it is Rodney's father who is on the front cover of the album.
The fourth Dead Milkmen album and still my favourite. My friend Robin was the one who discovered them. The local record store owner convinced him that he needed this album some time in 1990 and I've been a fan ever since he played it to me.
There are other great Milkmen albums, sure, but every single track on this one is a winner. My least favourite track is probably My Many Smells, and it still makes me laugh. Faves include: The Guitar Song (which many people don't like, but I love), Life Is Shit, Ringo Buys a Rifle, I Walk The Thinnest Line; as well as the obvious fan favourites: Punk Rock Girl, Stuart and Smokin' Banana Peels. Possibly one of the most original and varied albums I've ever heard. Every single track sounds different.
And again on the lyric sheet: Special thanks to everyone (including Tom Walsh)
