CD Review: When I saw the red cobra on the front of the brand new Danny Fast Fingers CD that arrived today, I couldn't wait to pop it into my player.  What greeted my ears was a very unique blend of quirky tunes, humorous lyrics, simple melodies, and funny funk that worked.

There was a groove in such tunes as "Love Me Strange" and "Code Redd".  A nod to Terrapin Station era Grateful Dead in "Snake Head". And a Minutemen vocal approach that was untrained and shakey, but worked for the garage rock arrangements.

Danny Fast Fingers plays a wide variety of instruments including synthesizers, pedal steel guitar, and harmonica.  I would assume that this is where his name came from because I didn't hear any lightning-fast riffs coming from my speakers.  He definitely treats the listener to an instrumental buffet though.

Rounding out the band is Debra Par on bass and Spyder The Drummer on, you guessed it, drums!

If you're looking for 12 fun songs to get you through a stressful day, you should give this one a listen.
