So maybe Peter Buck will fly Keith Streng down to Baja this weekend for the final couple nights of the Todos Santos Festival. A full-blown Full Time Men reunion. And then, following that 10-minute set, they’ll figure out where to go from there.
Way back in 1985, two guitarists – one played with the Fleshtones, one played with a band names R.E.M. – got together and knocked out a twangy three-song side project. One of ’em had to sing, I suppose, and since Buck doesn’t, Streng did. (Even tho he really can’t sing either.) Nothing here that’s gonna change your life, but it is quite an enjoyable listen. And Buck busts out the banjo, which especially at the time, was pretty cool.
Three short bursts of jangle pressed on audiophile-ish Quiex vinyl, housed in a super nice jacket that is still in shrink. $15.
