Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Although there are a few blasts of upfront silliness--Deadeye Dick's new-wavish "New Age Girl," and Willi One Blood's dancehall sendup "Whiney, Whiney"--the soundtrack to the Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels comedy doesn't try to be dumb at all.
  • The best-known of these bands contribute cover versions, and instead of playing them for irony or humor, they play them to emphasize their own strengths. Thus, the Crash Test Dummies, whose specialty is the folk-rock story song, cover XTC's fable "The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead" (with keyboardist Ellen Reid stepping up to take the lead vocal in place of baritone frontman Brad Roberts); Deee-Lite puts a light and airy hip-hop spin on Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing"; the Butthole Surfers overexagerate the weirdness in Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man" (the same version that appears on the Surfers' PIOUGHD album); and the Proclaimers are a sincere bar band (albeit with Scottish accents) doing the Temptations' "Get Ready."
  • Up-and-coming guitar-pop bands round out the album, along with a one-hit wonder from the late '80s, the Primitives, whose "Crash" now sounds like a major influence on all this alternative pop stuff.
