Transparent Records – Miami (1999)

Man-size habit
Do You Love Your Bad Self

Splinter – guitar
Baby Doll Todd – vocals
James Ivers – bass
Joey Image – drums

I saw these neo-glam weirdos at least once at Churchills, about the time this record came out. Their self-conscious punkity look was a little out of place and throwing confetti at the sullen crowd was ridiculous. Yes, that’s Joey Image of Misfits fame – a fact they don’t let you forget (can’t really blame ‘em). Man-sized Habit is the best song title and probably the best song on this record. Rabid fans of New York Dolls, Dead Boys, etc. will find kindred souls at the Human Buffet. It’s good – I suppose I’ve just heard it before. The most amazing part of this release was the over-the-top propaganda claiming oppression from Rudy Guliani and the church for not understanding. Nice cover, red vinyl - best band person name – Baby Doll Todd – I wonder if he kept the name for real life.
