Steve Taylor’s ‘Goliath’ is a Roaring, Raging Comeback by J. Edward Keyes is not only a great review of the new Steve Taylor (and The Perfect Foil)'s new CD from a mainstream source, but in four comparisons Keyes makes , I've learned about four new (to me) intriguing artists:
1) "The best of Taylor’s writing casts him as a kind of Jarvis Cocker of American Religion, pointing out its foibles with an acid tongue and sanding his sharp darts with wry, expertly-applied satire."
2)"It’s like 'The Entertainment' from Infinite Jest as filtered through a Richard Hell song "
3) "Taylor’s observations come off not so much as stuffy polemics as wry, Swiftian gallows humor--Pilgrim’s Progress staged by Armando Iannucci
Don't miss this!:
Here's some of the album:
Bonus: here's some video of Steve and the Foil playing a couple of oldies, as I captured them here in Fresno recently.
Note: sub bass player
