Rascal Reporters - The Foul-Tempered Clavier (Mega Blowout Sale)

"Based in suburban Detroit, formed in the mid-1970s by high school chums Steve Gore and Steve Kretzmer, the Rascal Reporters made music together for over 30 years, until Gore's death in March, 2009.
Call it Progressive Rock, Avant-Garde Pop, Sound Collage, Experimental, Rock in Opposition, Sentimental Tear Jerkers, Quirky Folk Tunes for Casio, Elevator Music from Hell, or whatever category you like, this duo of Steve Kretzmer (keyboards, percussion, vocals, guitars) and Steve Gore (keyboards, percussion, vocals, guitars) delighted in confusing audiences and smudging the lines between genres over the course of one 7" single and 7 studio albums."

This 2001 release was the final release by the Rascal Reporters in their original lifetime and one of their best.
The complexity of the compositions & ideas here will thrill and astonish fans of rehearsal intensive rock. The opening track is so wonderful that even at 2:15, it's almost alone worth the price of the album. Dave Newhouse (The Muffins) also appears wonderfully on this album and is as close to a 'third member' as they ever got.
