EMBODIMENTS OF CRAVING AND AVERSION
A band which is self-described as ``industrial zydeco'' or ``elfcore''
simply can't be for everyone. Stale Urine certainly defies any
mainstream pigeonholing and maybe sort of sounds like the mid-60's
NYC band The Fugs. With song subjects ranging from the popular
(``Bob Ross,'' ``John Denver, Poet Laureate of Colorado'') to the
non-mammalian (``Lobster,'' ``Late Cretaceous Blues'') to the
high-falutin' (a 52-second snippet of Verdi's ``La Donna e Mobile''),
Stale Urine is not a band to trifle with (one song even has a melody).
