A House, "On Our Big Fat Merry-Go-Round"
Review by: Mr. Media
Though they made it through Taylor Dane , Reaganomics, and the so-called Grunge Revolution, A House could not survive the cold 90's and broke up in 1997 after putting in eleven good years. This is the reason why. Known for a good sense of political INcorrectness, a house took Elvis Costello's pub rock, U2's energy, and the rebellious nature and twisted guitar of Gang of Four and created excellent rock albums. This album is so ironically titled because it derides the world in all its fraudulence, but it still has a sense of fun. One of the few albums of the late 80's to rock without being full of hair and tight pants.
