The Approximately Infinite Universe


From Yoko’s rap as the Beatles killer to her very bizarre “art” career whether it be fluxus, music, painting most people are understandably baffled if you tell them that at one point she made a a truly rocking pop record. But it’s true and most importantly it’s good! It’s reeeaaalllyyy good, actually! Needless to say this isn’t your standard whiz, bang, pow fluffed up radio schlock pop, but it none the less goes down easy and it’s plenty tasty. She has an ace backing band in Elephant’s Memory and she really does have an ability to write tunes that seem to come from deep within her strange strange soul. The opening track, “Yang Yang” on the (double!) LP is a psyched up jam that really makes ya want to let your hair hang down, while “I felt like smashing my face in a clear glass window” is a monumentally great pop song about teen frustrations and botched home life. Other album highlights are “Move On Fast” which is a serious ripping tune that would go swimmingly sandwiched between the Pink Fairies and 13th Floor Elevators on a mix tape, and also the title track, “Approximately Infinite Universe” is a spaced out (pun intended) hit the Shocking Blue should be seriously jealous they never wrote.

Get this, it rules! Promise!
