Factorymen- The Log 7". I think a lot of people were wondering when the Homostupids would return to their short-lived indulgence in lethargic caveman-build-compooter music as displayed on “The Brutal Birthday” EP. Here’s the answer. It a departure from the thrashy, trashy, acid-damaged skull music that the Homostupids are known for and there’s a reason for that. Before the Homos had even been conceived, Steve had the “Brutal Birthday” recordings, and merely decided to finally give a name to his solo wanking with this release under the moniker Factorymen. This record is equally funny, scary and confounding with all the sheer what-the-fuck-ness running through the grooves. Listening to this thing is like doing a crossword you can't finish because half the clues are missing. Some of the songs have a noise-curious Butthole Surfers like feel, so that should give you an idea of what this is all about.
