Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci – Spanish Dance Troupe

10 06 2011

Listened: Friday April 29

It’s only fitting that there’s a dog on the front of Spanish Dance Troupe – I can’t help but get down to “Poodle Rockin'” every time I listen to this album, even though it’s a totally bizarre song. The entire album is much more cohesive and pop oriented than previous releases, which in some ways is less fun, but is still really well done.

When SDT came out in 1999, I was in college, and naturally I went to an in-store performance of theirs at Mod Lang. It was pretty hilarious to see all 5 or 6 of the band members crammed into the infamously pack-ratty space, trying to play their instruments. I still have (analog) pictures of this, which are some of my earliest pictures of a show. My copy of SDT is also autographed!
