Let's Get Out of This Terrible Sandwich Shop
"Hatchet" b/w "Misery Tomb"
Genres: indie pop, pop
July 25 - 31 2005
Let's Get Out of This Terrible Sandwich Shop is the work of Tony
Mendoza, a Ron Sexsmith-like character who likes to sing silly
songs over a Farfisa organ and drums. It's a simple combination,
but it can make for some pretty catchy music.
"Hatchet" is a melodic tale of a hatchet and the power it
brings. Fun stuff, in a sort of nerdy singer/songwriter
vein. "Misery Tomb," meanwhile, is more of a skit -
I'm not sure I understand it, but there's some experimental music,
some sort of comedy routine and a short little blast of pop in the
end. All in all, this is a neat little disc; "Misery
Tomb" is a tad confusing but "Hatchet" is good fun.
