Grandaddy : The Crystal Lake

Nu-psychedelicists re-release their finest moment...

Top sleeve features a CHiPS-style motorplod brazenly kidnapping a cute little baby polar bear to fuck, kill, fuck again and then eat, the dirty pig bastard. The track is the usual jolly amusing Grandaddy faux-folk fuckbuggery subverted by Eno-ish strange noises. And the

B-side is about the joys of nose medicine and is probably about the fact that nasal inhalers in the US used to contain ephedrine. Which is why legendary rock hack Lester Bangs used to eat dozens of them every day. Even after they stopped putting ephedrine in them. The

mad bastard.
