Album Notes
This is the debut full length CD from New York City's LIKE WOW, and like one of the song titles, it's One Wild Ride!

Limited edition jewel case has a genuine lifelike 3-D plastic ear ionically bonded to it!

"These guys are a lot cooler than one would guess based on their goofy packaging." (THROWRUG zine)

"Sometimes it's like lounge music and other times like the B-52's on holiday in hell with Tom Waits as tour guide." (SOUND VIEWS)

"It's Groovy Goth-a-billy Dead Surf-Punk...brings back memories of those 70's party albums they used to advertise on TV. My favorite line of the whole album is 'You're pouring boiling caramel in the apple of my eye.' Yes!" (LEVITY magazine)

"Vocal madman Thomas Truax howls and yelps and growls in all the right places!" (B-SIDE)

"Reminds me of the stuff from Twin Peaks soundtrack: very cool, hip, laidback kinda stuff." (SPUN Magazine).

Featuring guest contributions by members of infamous New York 'underground' scenesters Railroad Jerk, Motherhead Bug and the Dustdevils.

Alun Hughes

Sinister rock with a Cramps style glee and playfullness.
Like Wow inhabit a scary place, an odd made-up town (Wowtown) that would freak most travellers out. In musical persona, the town's full of fringe-gothic sounds - Muscling in between Tom Waits and The Cramps to give graveyard blues. Dark colour enough even without the lyrics, which are delivered with alternating lounge croon and hollow snarls by Thomas Truax. If you loved the attention to character detail and story-led music style that Nick Cave epitomised in Murder Ballads you'll thoroughly enjoy this album.
