There is some fairly gritty guitar playing on the 10 songs present, but some of the tracks sound unfinished and there are a few that were obviously run-throughs that somehow made it as final takes. And at 31 minutes total length you have to feel a bit cheated. Rarity doesn't make up for brevity in my book, especially not at the price Shadoks charge for their stuff. The best track on this is one called 5 O'clock Trip which is the most together and rocking, and the fist track Key has some tasteful honest!
Overall I was a bit dissappointed, having swallowed the whole male Janis Joplin thing. With Shadoks it pays to take the hyperbole with a bunch of salt. Having said that though, Shadoks have issued some great stuff so don't be put off by this. If you like the heavy side of psychedelic music try Shiver. Now that's a rare, heavy psych monster!

The demo displayed the raw energy they were known for, and heavily influenced by grunge with Emmett's vocals being presented in the same fashion as Kurt Cobain 's. Many of the locals had the impression that their demo was an unreleased Nirvana album. They then released further demo tapes such as Butter Couldn't Melt , and Dragon. Butterfingers then released their debut album, 1.

Butterfingers are thought to have come from Texas, as their album is rarely sighted far from the Houston area. Musically, this band will have wide appeal amongst readers of this book - wild psychedelic guitar on every cut, that druggy underground vibe that was so prevalent in the 'States during this era but seldom was captured on vinyl and was never allowed on radio.
The lead vocalist has an obnoxious "soulish" vocal technique that irritates, however and overall the band come across as one-dimensional. Several collectors are quite certain that Butterfingers were a black group, but they sound simply hillbilly to me.
