Gone Ain't Gone – Tim Fite
CD Review by Mike D'Ariano

2/2006
 
           
 

 

  Ok . . . should I start now? Remember when Beck was quirky and cool, and not a huge rock star that has to walk the razor-thin line between quirky and cool and commercially viable? Remember that guy Liam Lynch who wrote that "whatever" song but put out an album of really cool clever funny tunes that no one bought? You know how the Beastie Boys (there are better examples, but I'm tired) like to put little samples and skits on their albums that don't really have anything to do with anything but generally sound cool and make the experience of hearing the album something more than just the experience of hearing a few songs strung together in a row? Smash all of that together . . . the edgy cool, the humor, the irreverence, and of course the fuck it – as in fuck it if MTV won't play this – and you've got the new Tim Fite CD. It's full of great lines, unexpected twists and laugh-out-loud moments, and it's more than worth $15. Go buy this one now.

Highlights: "No Good Here," "Not A Hit Song," "If I Had A Cop Show,"
"45 Remedies."
