Yes the name is silly and the album title does suggest an angst ridden Emo album, full of shite songs to cut your arms to, but get past the ridiculously bad names and in fact what you have on your hands is a decent band and album. I use decent in the loosest sense. Stateside they duo of Clark Westfield ( The Aristocrat of Crime) and Puppy Mills (The Snitch) have built up a reputation as being a band fully moulded in the true cock-rock, glam metal tradition. As arched and Electric Six as this all sounds, it’s this overt style of song writing that allows them to get away with classic song titles such as ‘Robots Can Fuck Your Shit Up’ and ‘We Wear Mittens’ .
