Procosmian Fannyfiddlers: Requiem Fatigue

The second song on Requiem Fatigue is called "We Are Here to Annoy You." Mission accomplished.

Although Norway's Procosmian Fannyfiddlers manage to avoid some of the inside-joke nonsense that plagued 2008's The Horse From Hell, these four men and three women — who go by such names as Pornographic Johnson, Böddus Lut, Eric the Awful, Sleazy Teigen and Fist — remain a highly acquired taste. All of Requiem Fatigue's 12 songs (including the ditties "Crap in the Ceiling," "Carpe Scrotum," Too Fat For Love," "The Bar-Latrine Is My Chapel" and "Diaphragm of Doom") were written on acoustic guitar and accented with flute, violin and piano. The result is more organic and melodic but no less obnoxious, with lyrics like "You'd be honoured to let me/Lick your panties out/Just to get a touch — a touch of your crotch," sung in a weak albeit dead-serious faux soprano by Hebbe Santos.

The dual male/female vocals wouldn't sound out of place in a traveling transsexual vaudeville show — hey, Procosmian Fannyfiddlers actually call themselves purveyors of "highly original burlesque progressive rock" — and one or two spins of Requiem Fatigue might be good for a laugh (or a shock, depending on who's doing the spinning). But, really, any further listening my require therapy.
