San Diego\'s Bigfellas have finally released the album people were afraid they would, Chubbed Up. The Bigfellas have been described as \'Steely Dan for the Pabst Blue Ribbon set\', \'Zevonesque\', \'the #1 threat to Barenaked Ladies, professionally and personally\'. This 14-song, 60-plus-minute CD has enough of everything to please the family, but piss off one person in that family at the same time. The schizophrenic 2008 release includes a cabaret Gershwin gay ripoff/homage (\'I Wish That I Were Gay\'), toe-tapping broke lament (\'Dollar For Every Dime - The Lotto Song\'), golf rap (\'On The Green\'), an old-timey waltz (\'Four Minute Mile\', politically charged rock (\'Johnny Get Out Of The Sky\'), an equally anti- & pro-stoner trippy epic (\'4:20\'), a horn-infused groove about the hassle of relocation (\'Moving Day\') and a Francophile jab at America\'s \'freedom fries\' idiocy that sounds as if you\'re on the streets of Paris with a baguette & beret (\'Vous Ne Parlez Francais\'). Chubbed Up features some cameos from a half-dozen San Diego bands but relies primarily on the Bigfellas themselves throwing in the kitchen sink, horns, fiddle, banjo and a whistle solo amongst the wall-to-wall drums, flashy bass, inside-your-head guitars and strong doses of piano. While you might not be able to figure out how to describe it to your friends, you\'ll want them to hear it anyway.
