Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Composer: Violent Femmes.
Muze PNote Violent Femmes: Gordon Gano (guitar); Brian Ritchie (acoustic guitar); Victor de Lorenzo (drums).
Muze PNote Intense, wry, risque, and dependably quirky, the music of Violent Femmes helped define "college rock" in the 1980s. The Wisconsin trio's willfully primitive folk-punk emerged fully formed on the group's 1983
Muze PNote eponymous debut, unleashing such classic acoustic barnstormers as "Kiss Off," "Add It Up," and the dance-floor sing-along favorite "Blister in the Sun." These tracks are all present on PERMANENT RECORD, a
Muze PNote band retrospective that follows the Femmes through the fuller sound of HALLOWED GROUND and beyond, touching down on the Talking Heads-like rendition of T.Rex's "Children of the Revolution" (which features the Heads' Jerry Harrison) and the oddly uplifting, nostalgic "American Music."
Muze PNote Although this 16-song set overlaps somewhat with ADD IT UP: 1981-1993, it follows the Femmes catalog through 2000's FREAK MAGNET (including the melancholy, soul-tinged "Color Me Once" from the soundtrack to 1994's THE CROW), making for a more wide-ranging overview. Throughout the compilation, frontman Gordon
Muze PNote Gano's unmistakably whiny vocals, caustic lyrics, and fierce acoustic-guitar strumming are at the fore, embodying the skewed charm of this utterly unique ensemble.

Producer: Mason Williams (Compilation)

Professional Reviews

Mojo (Publisher)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "Singer Gordon Gano's oeuvre vacillates between extremes of rootsy, lyrical majesty and They Might Be Giants whimsy."
