Rex would like to think of I Like Fun / I Am Density Particled
as a party album. I can see that. This noisy brew of
abrasion-rock and messcore pop would especially work at a holiday
office party or something of the sort, to play up that whole
"SHUT THAT SHIT OFF" factor. I can really imagine
"Just Fix," a screeching, noisy, reverb-and-vox explosion of
sound, cutting off halfway through due to a plug-pulling upper
This is undoubtedly the scenario Anthropophagous Rex
envisioned while creating this album late one night, with nothing more than a shitty
tape machine, a guitar, and a basin of human waste at their
disposal. "Glib Villain Song" is an instant classic,
despite its primitive melodic simplicity and errors.
"Rocket Show," meanwhile, is a noisy piece of shitpop that
is reminiscent of early Hanson material. Other notable
moments are "A POEM ABOUT A HAUNTED HOUSE AND DODGEBALL"
(though they should have supplied a lyrics sheet), 'rocker'
"Death to the Bees," and two fiercely lo-fi renditions of Bikini
Kill's "Rebel Girl" and Animotion's
On one hand this album is cheap. On the other hand, you have
to be part of a select group of DIY experimental mess-pop freaks to
appreciate it. Think about it.
