Titus Andronicus has a new one just out - that would be "Local Business" and it's on XL Recording. This is a raggedy but rockin' jam band with soulful and slightly screamy vocals and lotsa guitars - enough to please even the ever spinning, still surviving Jerry's Kids. Although it's got dumb lyrics - it's a great cool groove jam song, "(I Am The) Electric Man," good enough to make you a band fan as is "Titus Andronicus Vs. The Absurd Universe." Three guitars don't hurt making this yet another really good band from New Jersey. They'll be in Hell-A on 7 November - too bad, that's as close as they get to us.
