ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Excerpts from the St. John's University publication, The Record, by staff columnist Chris Wachtler. April 11, 1991

Frolic in the Factory: A SnozOpera
"Who ever heard of a Snozberry" seems to have become an obsolete question. The album contains some very interesting, polished and well-crafted music opening with a sound bite from the movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" from which we learn that the Snozberries are "the music makers and the dreamers of dreams." It then moves on into the electric jangle of "Two Years" and the powerful, smoothed chaos of "Michael."

Another song of note is the thumping, groove-oriented "Buyin' and Sellin'." It's a frustrated attempt to grasp something real in a confusing world, in which Jarmer wails "sometimes to reject everything makes much more sense / Some people try to change your mind by dropping hints," in front of a "Stone Roses" power-pop grid, full of energy and pure exasperation.

The album's true gem, however, is the reflective, anti-war song "In Love With Hate," lyrics by Karl Raschke. "I liked that one the best," said violinist Lisa Westgard when asked to identify her favorite song. "It says pretty much exactly how I felt about the war."

According to lead guitarist Dan Page, the future of the band - Page, Mike Jarmer, Westgard, drummer Paul Carpenter, bassist Aaron Smith and guitarist Steve "Cage" Tacheny - is uncertain at this point. Whatever the future holds in store for the Snozberries, this album sounds terrific, like it was recorded by a group far more seasoned than this band of college students.
