John Dwyer's Thee Oh Sees started as a solo project and evolved into a primary outlet and full band, which means Dwyer's songwriting tics have turned into skills and there's a staff to execute them. Fortunately, his muse digs punk and trash -- these 16 basement screams are the B-sides of rock history, from reet-beat blurts ("Idea for Rubber Dog") to almost no-wavey scrape ("Corrupted Coffin") to whatever language was going through Syd Barrett's head late at night (the semi-ballad "If I Stay Too Long").
