Who's ready for some full-on?











Dunno what happened, but when I bought this over a decade ago I was in love with it. The aluminum siding on the 'ol doublewide was shaking back then I can tell you. This is the debut album from Marcos Sanchez from Mexico and I think it was his best. But it's lost something. Or perhaps as the years have gone by I've gained something like a healthy distaste for full-on. It's very melodic and high tempo with euphoric synth sounds, but that bass line tho...Tough to get past that and it's in every track. Nah scratch that...it's an outright chore to choke this one down. Lasers are fired at a hectic pace and the shiny quality to it just seems a little too much in your face. There is no easing into any track it's just thrust upon you. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am.


Either it hasn't aged well or I've aged myself out of this music. I feel like that old guy yelling at kids to stay the hell of my lawn.


Marcos...get the f*ck off my lawn.

Sometimes it seems like Psynews is a bunch of old farts trying to understand why the world stopped to be such a magic place it used to be 10 years ago (at least this is what happened to me).


Well, the album is great and definitely the Lamat's best, but not what I feel like listening now.

"like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say."
