Corndolly - Self-Titled
I honestly do not remember how I got this cd. Either it was cheap/free when I ordered something else from Parasol (also holders of the Indies.com domain, which at one time was probably worth more than the rest of the company. . .), or I heard one of the other bands the members ended up in when Corndolly broke up. Does the name Angie Heaton mean anything to anyone?
"Often compared to artist Liz Phair, Heaton's voice is powerful yet subtle. Her songs show a terrific amount of personal influence while still remaining available to her listeners. This pop/punk singer has close ties to many other projects including Liquorette and Corndolly." Aversion.com
Didn't think so, no.
As for the original group/cd:
Yes, the chart-topping hits Squirting Banana Dildo & Come Out are available once again on this self-titled release. This CD also includes tracks from the band's single on Dalmation Records. The disc compiles 4 unreleased songs along with 7 previously released (although out of print) tracks. Seven of these tracks were recorded by Brad Wood.
For the majority of their time together, Corndolly was an all-female affair. When one of the original members left the band, a male bassist joined. So, yes, it's a girl band... kinda.
I have nightmares about being the male bassist for a girl band. I always end up designated driver, and have to convince drunk women that we really need to get in the van before someone rips off our equipment again, or we won't make it to the gig in the next city, a mere 14-hour-drive away. . .
Stop snickering, those dreams are frightening.
Want to know more? Two Angie Heaton cds are available at EMusic, which means free samples if nothing else, and you can pick up Liquorette at spun.com used or Parasol new. And that last link will let you hear their version of "Oh Sheila."
No, that was meant to make you want to hit the link. . .
