The original version of this Oakland, CA trio’s album, Numbers Life, was crazy enough. Now, Numbers has the rest of the Tigerbeat6 crew to mash up their songs and spit them back out with a dash of post-punk-thrash-funk (as Gold Chains does with “Prison Life”), squelchy lo-fi art-punk (on Electronicat’s treatment of “Driving Song”) and tongue-in-cheek Atari-electro drill & bass (see Original Hamster’s take on “Human Replace”). The overall affect is akin to driving past a bizarre drug bust on some country backroads á la Cops-there’s some crazy shit worth rubbernecking for, but the other stuff is laughable and worthy of ridicule.
