CD-R (Omaha, NE)

-i don't know what i'm doing here
-you little shit
-a song for rock-n-roll
-you'd rather be depressed than alone
-paranoid magicians worldwide
-cruising through the astralworld(noone understands)
-dear jesus, i'm ready to go
-let's go to the moon
-in the back of the van (lost, stoned, band)
-i know you're there, but you're not there

(All Music Guide) Forget New York, forget L.A.; America¹s capital of underground music is Omaha, Nebraska, where there is the highest ratio of tape labels and indie imprints per capita. Two such labels united their forces to release A Tomato a Day¹s Nothing Special. Lo-fi folk rock for the disabused generation, A Tomato a Day¹s songs are both catchy and strange, likeable and annoying. The intentional D.I.Y./lo-fi production lessens the pop sensibilities of tracks like 'I Don¹t Know What I¹m Doing Here' and 'Cruising Through the Astral World,' but this writer is not sure if it works against them. You need to be willing to take some punishment or at least show patience to enjoy this CDR, but these guys are obviously on to something. They play well for this kind of band, handling acoustic and electric guitars, piano and drums like a capable bunch. The electric guitar is particularly off the wall. The lead singer has an indie country-folk thing going (ie. singing off key is seen as a necessity) with occasional psychedelic episodes. Try to think of a cross between Simon Joyner and Syd Barrett. When the lyrics address the topic of rock Œn¹ roll musicians ('A Song for Rock-n-Roll,' 'In the Back of the Van (Lost, Stoned Band)'), the voice becomes caricatured with a Southern twang and back vocals get very messy. Please give these guys a little bit more money to record with improved means, just so we see what happens. - François Couture

(Aural Innovations no. 23) There isn't any info on the Public Eyesore site as to who makes up A Tomato For A Day. But that's ok. It doesn't get any more lo-fi than this. This 30+ minute set consists of Folk/Country/Garage/Pop-Psych/Rock songs that despite the crappy recording are nicely melodic and quite catchy. I'm a sucker for a raw homemade basement sound with all the associated warts which, if you listen closely, can never hide the passion and talent behind the blemishes. We hear everything from simple acoustic folk songs to full band electric guitar rockers. Dig that trippy garage wah on "You'd Rather Be depressed Than Alone". And then there's the thundering wall of sound heard on "Paranoid Musicians Worldwide", which is a bit out of character relative to the rest of the album. But I think my favorite is the wild and folk freaky "Cruising Through The Astral World". Nothing spectacular here folks... just a really nice set of songs - Jerry Kranitz

(I am Cancer 9/1/02) what is it people say about genius songsmiths? "a young so-and-so"??? breif catastropies and more breif catastropies on an acoustic guitar. he has it right when he says "the best songs in the world are usually unheard" - Chris Fischer
