Factory Showroom Vinyl Vinyl


Info

Re-issued on vinyl by our good friends at Asbestos Records, Factory Showroom is the first of many of what would become TMBG’s longterm collaboration with engineer/producer Pat Dillett. Expansive rhythms and kaleidoscopic arrangements actively blend electronic, electric, and acoustic approaches. Lead guitarist Eric Schermerhorn’s lyrical lead guitar work shines on many tracks and the band’s pop craftsmanship reaches new heights on tracks like “How Can I Sing Like A Girl?,” “Metal Detector,” and “Pet Name.” Audience favorite “James K. Polk” finally gets the full band treatment here, and the track “I Can Hear You” holds the singular distinction of being recorded directly to a wax cylinder recorder at the Edison Laboratory.
