Peanut Envy

Circusized Peanuts

. What a great name for a record. And as I remembered it,

Peanuts

was also a pretty kick-ass album. Not quite as good as

Deadly Kung Fu Action

-- the classic Warlock Pinchers album, which contained the immortal ditty "

Morrisey Rides a Cockhorse

" -- but pretty kick-ass nonetheless. Prior to this morning, when I

downloaded

the entire platter off of eMusic, it had been more than a decade since I last heard

Peanuts

, and at least as long since I'd even given it any thought. As I write this, though, the Pinchers are back on the playlist in heavy rotation. And you know what? Listening to King Scratchie and K.C. Kasum partying like it's 1991, I gotta tell ya:

Peanuts

sounds every bit as good to me right now as it did back then.
