Too Thirsty 4 Love
Wednesday, December 24, 2008
Quintron and puppet master/spouse, Miss Pussycat, can’t quite put together a record that holds the excitement or spectacle of their shows. Too Thirsty 4 Love follows the New Orleans organist’s dive into such big, bounding chops as “Waterfall” and “Walk to the Harvest.” And never before has the sexually sinister hue heard in “The Boss Wants to Party with You” been so pronounced on Quintron’s records.
“Sunday Night” is a painful faux-British bellow that is absolutely unbearable, and the Euro-trash techno strut of “Model Ex-Citizen” taints Quintron’s gritty, swamp-tech appeal with unfounded irony. Too Thirsty casts only a pale reflection of Quintron’s genius live performances.
