Secrets of the Alibi
The Northern Pikes
1988: Virgin 2-90974
Overwrought, chewy vocals and a truly ghastly hairstyling job for the cover photo mar this album so much that its hard to hear the songwriting and musicianship under it all. I had Blood She Wants on my wishlist for years, since hearing it on Seattles short-lived KEZX 98.9 around 1990, and only managed to acquire a copy of this CD in 2007; the songs still a treat, but its going to take me some serious time to process the rest of the album.
