The Asparagus is the debut CD by the band of the same name. A truly original mix of quirkrock, with a bit of post-punk and retro - these guys walk the walk when it comes to originality. Each song is catchy and stands on it's own, yet is a surprise in that it takes you to a different place than the one before it. Although loosely arranged, you can hear influences of They Might Be Giants, Frank Zappa, and XTC - and everyone is sure to have a favorite song. From the social commentary of Political Football and Televised to the humor of Apology and Picklehead, there is an unexpected intelligence in these rock/pop gems to be mined. Your Mother Records is proud to have as it's first release -a CD that sounds different, looks different, and is different. Listen to Your Mother, try The Asparagus!
