Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children Macnuggits: Trainwreck To Narnia [Album]
February 9, 2013 3 Comments
Corbett Redford and Dan Abbott are a duo that obviously understand the power behind the laughter. But even more so, they may be the finest songsmiths out today to understand the power of analogy and finding humor in the dereliction of human decency. In a world that seems to be at times deprived of decency and filled with shit at its core, it’s good to know that there a fine folks like Bobby Joe Ebola & The Children Macnuggits who will be there to exploit indecency and the modern warfare against the common man in a beautifully light-hearted way. Which is what I feel their latest, and possibly most personal, album Trainwreck To Narnia does all to well. This is an album that is bright and beautiful, yet tells it just like it is. You will feel love. You will feel inspired. Because if you don’t, you might have a whole lot of soul-searching and/or therapy in your very near future.
As the guys themselves always say, “Just because we’re laughing, doesn’t mean we’re joking.” And these truths seem to continue to be self-evident throughout Trainwreck To Narnia, just as they did back in 2010 with their stellar comeback album that I have never stopped listening to known as F , and just as they have been proving through the last three decades. From the hilarious goof on Ice-T known as “Cop Kisser”, to the lovely little Louden Wainwright-like ditty “My Darling Boo”, and all the way back to the analogical look at the downer parts of life known as “Blues Turn Brown”, Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children Macnuggits have created another absolutely stellar addition to their already extremely impressive catalog. And thee shall be damned of “The Last Child Soldier” doesn’t blow thy mind with its brilliance and sass. This is an album that will make you laugh, cry, and more importantly, simply make you feel good about yourself through the power of lyric and expressionism. This is definitely not an album to be missed.
