Lipps, Inc. – Pucker Up (Casablanca LL0679) (1980)

Believe it or not, based on a genuine regard for “Funky Town” I had high hopes for the Minneapolis disco outfit’s second Lp. But no. This is an awful, joyless album of shrieking, obvious lyrics and oppressively “serious” disco music auteured by a “Weird” Al Yankovic lookaline compelled to see his name in print for a combined label and liner note total of one score and five times.

I played the closing instrumental, entitled “Jazzy” for fuck’s sake, at 45rpm to see if that would help. It didn’t.
