In case you haven't noticed by now, we here at G.O.M.E. tend to worship at the altar of Chris Goss. I track down every record he's affiliated with, from the MASTERS OF REALITY stuff to the more electro UNKLE. GOON MOON is the bizarre soundclash between Goss and Jeordie White (aka Twiggy Ramirez), and Licker's Last Leg is their second album. It's also a front-runner for G.O.M.E. Album of the Year accolades. Is it desert rock? Well, in a sense, yes. Without Chris Goss, there would be no "desert rock" to speak of. However, the experimentation, keyboard orchestration, and use of effects makes this GOON MOON offering a bit more EARTHLINGS? than MASTERS OF REALITY. Rest assured, though, Gomies. There's a lot more to this record than simple blips and bleeps. "An Autumn That Came Too Soon", despite the electronics, is a page directly torn from the Goss/Homme handbook, and if "Pin Eyed Boy" doesn't remind you why you love MASTERS OF REALITY so much, then you clearly have some homework to do. My personal favorite? Ironically it's an earnest cover of the BEE GEES' "Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You".

Yeah, I'll see what I can do on the first record.

To open the file, you need WinRAR. It works like WinZIP. You can download a freebie here:
