Bill Corey ‎– Greatest Tits

3 out of 5

Label: WeMe Records

Produced by: Bill Corey

This is… not a great record, but its truth in advertising – a label on the front reads “Warning! This album is rubbish!” – and the childish album name and describing Bill Corey as “Artist, Performer, Entertainer, Comedian, Actor, Philospoher, Commentator, Representative, Spiritual Medium” pretty much sets the bar where it needs to be. It’s a rubbish record, and it’s intended to be rubbish. A good chunk of it can be summed up as letting a puerile-minded teenager looser with some samples and voice manipulations: that gives us “Slo Jam”‘s rattling off of sexual acts, and “The Echoing Mountains”‘ call-and-response swearing, and further such examples. The beats are pretty standard. However, it’s far from being unlistenable, because standard or not, the beats are actually composed – it doesn’t feel like comedy first, electro second, but rather something that’s cooked up together – and Corey isn’t, like, just farting into the microphone; for the most part, all the crassness is behind a wall of distorted voices and mumbled phrases that could be mistaken for something normal if you’re not listening too closely.

Eh… excepting “Mountains” and followup “Speak and Spell,” I guess, which are pretty much just naughty words. But even there, the way the words are presented suggests at least some thought given to presentation.

Not something I’m likely to listen to again, but not something I minded listening to.
