It’s no secret that we love People Corrupting People here at CPRA. They did our theme song for our podcast and our TV show. You watch the show and listen to the podcasts here, https://coloradopunkrockarmy.com/. We’ve reviewed their albums so many times I’ve lost track, but if you want to read more go here.
With the Covid 19 pandemic sweeping the world, we all need a break from the sad headlines on Facebook and the news. So leave it to People Corrupting People aka PCP to release their brand new record. “Lounge Lizard” on April 20, 2020. So light up a bowl and and read along with Grandpa Skabones kids.
PCP is known for their antics, in fact as I write this they are holding a 4/20 Smoke A Thon right here, https://www.facebook.com/pcpsux/videos/2667722366673414/. If you enjoy passing around a dildo be sure to check it out. So let’s dig into “Lounge Lizard”. This album is 100% pure instrumental, which to be honest I was caught off guard at first. There’s something very different and very lovable that I shall get into.
The first track, “Amazon Primus” has some heavy Primus-like bass lines by Eddie Lindo. It resembles early Alice In Chains, but less heroiny. I’ll prob go to hell for saying that haha. The next track is “Casio No He Didn’t”, and for whatever reason it reminds me of Gene from Bob’s Burgers. But this track will be a hit for Gene. It has a great groove and perfected horns. Is PCP staking a claim into the 80’s new wave era?
“Dewey Got Diddles” follows up and comes in with a heavy ska core rock edge. This track is more on the metal side, with some great skate punk sound. Jen’s viola play is remarkable. Mike brings the scifi in with work on the theremin. Dyl goes nuts on the drum kit. This is by far a favorite favorite track right here.
My next favorite song is up next, “Jim Jones Slumber Party”. I’m not gonna go into detail about Jim Jones, but check it out here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones. This track is beautifully written and delicious to the eardrums. This song needs to be on a soundtrack. For a band that plays a ton of antics, they are sure fucking talented. Expect this to be on a future CPRA Podcast episode!
“Panflute Sexual” is next up and Jethro Tull is about to get a run for his money, This track is super heavy on bass, fast and gives the pan flute a brand new hardcore edge. Holy shit the panflute is hardcore now! The next song is “Pterodactyl Cunt Punt”. This track reminds of early Suicidal Tendencies, with aggressive Anthrax edge. This was totally unexpected. Rich brings the ska core to the limits.
“Quarantina Wine Mixer” is next and the slowest track on the list. It’s a hot island track to help melt your cold heart, or does it warm up your cold heart? I don’t know if you caught my Southpark reference there? Dyl, Jen and Rick kill it on “Sax And Violins”. I hear a little Jewish folk in this track, but I could definitely be wrong. However it would not surprise me. Fans of “Arrested Development” will love the next track, “There’s Always Money In The Banana Stand”.
I’m not positive that’s a stand up bass at the intro, but it thumps deep and is a possibility. This track is grove worthy and fun. “Whatever You Say, Dr Dre” is up next. This track is mello and on the reggae ska side. Of course the obvious salute to the man himself Dr Dre. I personally love the horns on this song. The next track, “What’s Chaplin, Bro” is mixed with Chaplins’s famous speech from the “Great Dictator”. I sat beside myself embedded in the tones and listened sharply to Chaplin’s words. It will definitely make you think.
“Yeasty Boys” follows up with some amazing work on bass and guitar. “Lost In The Sauce” is next with a Primus nod, but funky like George Clinton, and a little latin spice in there. Now I’m no Disco Doug, but shit this track is fun! Get your skankin shoes on and that “Stayin Alive” outfit on! The final track is “Trapped In The Sap” while PCP may not be known for metal. This track may change things. Holy shit is it good!
Overall I’d say “Lounge Lizard’ is a magnificent instrumental album. PCP is mainly known as a ska band; however this album has everything I was never expecting. The deep bass, metal licks, cool island sounds, scifi, and some insane drums. Seriously don’t sleep on “Lounge Lizard” by People Corrupting People”. Get it here, www.pcpsux.com.
