Air Miami – Fuck You, Tiger 7”
Teen Beat, 1995
Acquired: Love Garden, Used, 2008
Oh man, this is a pretty big departure from the quite Unresty “Airplane Rider” 7” and not nearly as good. Where are my jangly, chimy guitars! WHERE ARE THEY! I understand the concept of progress, moving forward, all that, but “I Hate Milk” sound so dated. Like the worst part of the mid 90s. “Warm Miami May” is a synthesized snooze, “Afternoon Train” sounds like a Young Marble Giants parody (minus any sort of artsy charm) and “See Through Plastic” is...well, really fucking good. The guitar is back, and it's a slow, pretty little ditty that really makes me wonder what the hell was going on with the first three songs. I mean, you get a guitar tone that good, you oughta use it as often as possible! Anyway, this 7” sounds like a sonic experiment and while I absolutely love the title, there's only one song here I'd ever listen to again.
The album version of "I Hate Milk" is a little better, but the video oh man.
