Edward Barton: Barber Barber / Z-Bend
EDWARD BARTON: Z Bend (Wooden)
"THIS IS a Z bend / but this is not a Z car / the road is wet, the sign is wet / here comes the rend / I would not bet / I met myself (My name is Ted)..."
(Hello Ted. My name is Barry. And I like you. Although I'm not altogether sure why.) Out of kilter mud hog rumblings, sufficiently eerie and unlike Bros to scare the horses at Hallowe'en. Outrageous, nowhere fuzzes wriggle out of the speakers and get right up your nose. Insanely workaday or just insane: that is the question. Eddie has a nasal-thick garrumph that could loosen your bowels if you let it. With so many maggots infesting and festering his voicebox Mr Barton could well worm himself to the top. Of what, I'm still deliberating over.
