Boomkat Product Review:
Nowadays better known as novelist and screenwriter Alex McAuley, Charles Douglas made this long-lost album in 1999 with the assistance of producer Moe Tucker (of Velvet Underground fame) and engineer Kurt Ralske (best known for his work in Ultra Vivid Scene), who owned the rat-infested NYC studio in which it was recorded. Douglas spins a good yarn about the making of this album, and gives the distinct impression that everyone connected to this (bar Tucker) was permanently wasted. The Lives Of... sounds suitably rough and ready, and considering it's essentially a guitar-driven rock album, it's massively off-kilter, pinned together by admirably naive songwriting and performances that at times recall Pavement or Daniel Johnston.
