MUSIC REVIEWS

Those Darn Accordions-No Strings Attached (Globe)

 

I'm not sure why they sent me a disk by a band that features six lead accordion players. I suppose because I tend to be more open-minded to quirkiness than some other writers.

 

Well, with that in mind, I suppose Those Darn Accordions have a certain kitschy charm. And if you play it long and loud, I'm sure you'll get rid of unwanted houseguests.

 

Otherwise, I'm afraid, despite the fact these guys write what might very well be decent rock songs, the lead accordions obscure any tunefulness they might have and just make you feel like you're stuck at a demented bar mitzvah. (1/97)
