P: A.S.A.P.

If you trawl the Internet, you'll soon discover that little can be found about the quartet P, the band that originally released A.S.A.P. in 1995 with such illustrious guests as Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea and Sex Pistol Steve Jones. That aura of mystery hangs over the entire album (recently reissued by Caroline Records), which seems to have a serious case of schizophrenia. There's the Lou Reed-like, tongue-in-cheek opener "I Save Cigarette Butts" as well as alternately acoustic and muscular classic-rock tunes like "Michael Stipe" and "Mr. Officer," sloppy, fuzzy shout fests like "Zing Splash" and "White Man Sings the Blues," and the spaced-out jam "Scrapings from Ring." There's even a half-baked reggae song called "John Glenn (Mega Mix)," plus a totally inexplicable cover of ABBA's "Dancing Queen" and an unexpectedly haunting ballad in the form of "Die Anne." If all this sound like a cornucopia of aural delights, take the time to seek this one out. But good luck finding it.
