A clunky name for a group, but a record that more than makes us overlook that fact – thanks to a lean, fuzzy, focused set of tracks! The Five Day Week Straw People
title is a reference to the album's slight concept – dedicated to folks who work mindless jobs all week, but really start to live on the weekends – presented by the album in a pastiche of snapshot songs, often with a much headier sound than other records of its type! The duo have a very Cream-like sound overall – heavy bass rumbling through most songs, and lots of great guitar that often gets heavy on distortion, and which is played with a solo sensibility that's quite strong, and surprising, given the obscurity of the group. Titles include "Gold Digger", "Postman", "Car Wash", "I'm Going Out Tonight", "Dust In My Eyes", "Does It Rain", and "If You Were Around". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "As My Love Is For You" and "Father Martin".
