You could imagine this quirky little number appearing on a Tarantino movie as the crack addict plunges another sharpened stray into the eye of his drunken victim. Maybe not, but Cass McCombs certainly shook his earnest reputation with a healthy dose of what sounded like the Specials and the Only Ones on the rampage with a crate of JD on ‘Bury Mary’. The song was taken from McComb’s sophomore album ‘PREfection’, which raised the decibel level without (if you were to believe the critical assessment anyway) ever incurring better grades for song craft. Who cares what the scribes think anyway when the Baltimore artist rings our internal tills with the unrestrained glee of a crowded Christmas Eve. Cass is currently putting the finishing touches to his third album ‘A Whole New Leaf’ which will be released in April 2007. KD
