Flying Lizards - Money

(Virgin, 1979)

Semi-refining the glacial toy-store give-a-shitisms of “Summertime Blues,” the Flying Lizards continue their entertaining traipse into the novelty noise-fuckery cul-de-sac with yet another r’n’r remake. This one at least contains more “out” soundz guitar-/synth-wise, and the B is a suitably clanky dub version, but just how many deconstructionist covers do we actually need? Certainly not multiple albums worth… go ahead and pick out a Flying Lizards LP (or single!) at random, then sleep soundly knowing that you’ve heard all you’ll ever need to hear from these goofballs.
