Before Gregg Turkington was creating anti-comedy as Neil Hamburger, he was, along with guitarist John Singer, creating anti-music in Zip Code Rapists. This album rides the fine line between genius and stupidity. The first side contains one of my all-time-favorite songs about the best never resting, "The Best Never Rest," as well as the hysterical, historically-challenged "Presidents Song." The second side is mainly comprised of a live recording where the band mostly apologizes for their existence before covering Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game." I have never done drugs, but I assume this record would sound even better if I was stoned out of my mind.
