Pink and Brown | Shame Fantasy II (Load)
Insanity manifests itself in many ways. Just watch 'Twelve Monkeys' and 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' back to back for proof. If Pink and Brown were a film they'd be the cheapest skin flick on the shelf. One guy plays drums and wears brown; the other thrashes the fuck out of a cheap guitar and wears pink. They both look like man sluts. 'Shame Fantasy II' is their complete discography. It sounds like two deranged kids pumped full of sugar unleashing havoc in a school music room ?? absolutely fucking insane. Dave Brokema from Numbers recorded some of this; how the hell he kept himself together to make an album of his own we'll never know. The press release states "although gone [for this is the band's swansong], their dead body dances like that dead guy in 'Weekend at Bernies II'." The press release is shit; this is a billion times better than it suggests, and a billion times more fun than what you're doing right now.
