Rich Crook isn't one to dwell in the past! Even so he easily could. Being a former member of such amazing bands as the Reatards, Lost Sounds and Knaughty Knights ( just to name a few) he could have made the same record over and over again and still beat most people at their game. But he decided not to. While all other LOVER! Records where mostly recorded and performed all by Rich himself, this album is a full fledged Band recording. While most guys that decide to record all bythemselfs do this for the reason to make sure everything is done 100% their way, like Jay Reatard used to and for the record Erkin Koray does to this day, Rich took the rare step and put his trust again in fellow musicians. The cover makes sure you get the message quick: Master Crook and his dark deciples cooking up an evil stew consisting of the past Lover! Records saying : REVERSE THE CURSE. And what deciples they are:
Wes Kerstens-CLONE DEFECTS
Aaron Orlowski -BASEBALL FURIES
Matt Williams-BASEBALL FURIES, SPITS, LIVEFASTDIE, VEE DEE, HOT MACHINES
Zach Medearis and Mary McKane-OUTER MINDS
So what is the music like?? A bit more pop sometimes with hints of early 90ties British Indie (Caught). A bit more 60ties which mainly hits you in form of a great added organ and some amazing wild Garage Fuzz Guitars which sometimes even have a Chocolate Watchband Flavour ( Do I Really) Some real forward Garage stuff (Injured and Useless) But what ever it is...is done the unmistakenable LOVER! Style.
