It is difficult to know what to say about the Debris
Their set is so nonsensical that perhaps it is impossible to pull from
it an effective generalization.
Most of their songs appear to be mostly ad-lib, changing
from performance to performance, often with inexplicable changes and
random lyrics. The music is usually fairly simple, only rarely
the true skills of three excellent musicians. Normally they
to keep their talents understated, instead emphasizing the melodic and
lyrical aspects of their one-take-says-it all art form.
While they generally prefer to avoid studio recording, saying
the essential magma of disgusting groove", twice we have lured them
our studios with promises of free booze and loose women. The
time, they absolutely refused to cooperate with the engineer, instead
to get stoned and 'redecorate' several pieces of very expensive studio
equipment. Later they suddenly sat down and played a few random
which we scrambled to capture on digital recording gear. We
away from the day with four cuts: our favorite, a non-musical but
amusing piece called "Need a Bong Hit", and also "Kinderhund",
by Christ", and "Glaucoma". They called the session "Manicoteen",
for what reason we were not able to discern.
The second time, they were a little more well-behaved, and the
were two songs, "Can't Beat the Beet" and "Just Go Away", neither of
is finished, and both of which they lost interest in before they could
complete. We are still trying to get them back in the studio to
those recordings, which would probably be their best works to date, if
they would finish them.
Finally, we have "Man From Spokane", another recording
recently unearthed from the archives.
