" I Can't Get That Evil Wiener Song Out Of My Head"
Various Artists
(Hypno-Vista Records)
BY CHRIS TOENES
If you've frequented many of the local music joints in this area, particularly in the fair region known as
the Paris of the Piedmont, then those catchy little numbers penned by Chapel Hillian Bill "Billy Sugarfix"
McCormick are virtually in the air you've been breathing.

This collection represents local friends and neighbors who've been internalizing the music of Evil Wiener
for as long as they've been here.  Visions of gumdrops and haunted houses and striped-shirted
troubadours dancing in their heads, they have now turned out their own translations of McCormick's
songs.  The simple structure of the originals allows for a lot of interpretive play by those covering the
melodic jewels, and some took this opportunity to great success, honoring McCormick's tunes while
giving the listener a whole new animal altogether.  Take brilliant standout "Fairy Tale", redone by The
Stray Sod (Chuck Johnson and Amy Wilkinson), which captures the magical, otherworldly nauces of the
original, but takes it to wholly other place.  Bass-driven dark overtones creep in, piano tinkles
throughout, until Wilkinson's captured environmental recordings of birds give the song a sense of place:
making this fable very real.  Ghost of Rock strips bare "Bad Manners", hops up the tempo and thanks to
whiskey and Bud, finally takes advantage of the innocence therein.  Never thought you'd hear George
Jones do and EW song? Try $2 Pistols' "Silver Dollars."  Three Torches evoke a cigarillo-smoking Nick
Cave with their "Haunted House," Holy Roman Empire float "Maria" on a luminescent cloud of
harmonium and delicate vocals, and Shallow Be Thy Name check in nicely with an upbeat strummer on
"Mary Poppins."  Poncho Holly gives a tweaked sense of unrest to "Ann Can," with spiraling guitar that
fades out into loops and feedback.  Work Clothes stretch out "Marching Band," giving it a somber tone.

The songs on this cd were pulled from original DAT tapes,
quarter-inch masters, and 8/16 track recordings.  In one
instance, where there was considerable deterioration to the
original master, a cassette copy of the song "CAT" was used.  
Even with exceptional storing conditions, its normal for
recording tape to "rot" after a period of about 10 years or so.  
Without the care of Todd Goss, who stored the master tapes in
a temperature controlled environment for all these years, this
record would never have become a reality.
