Bicycle Face - Trust & Obey


Artist: Bicycle Face

Album: Trust & Obey (1992)

Bicycle Face was a band from Greensboro, North Carolina that existed from February 28, 1988 to August 30, 1994. The group originally consisted of Brian Huskey, Mike Barker (later of Rüebarb & Mind Sirens), and Jimmy Triplett (former member of The Naked Ramblers). ()

Trust and Obey is something of a mixed bag, with none of its elements winding up very exceptional -- Bicycle Face moves from rather conventionally trashy raunch-rock ("The Struggle to be Extraordinary") to a country-fried stomp that's a bit better ("Mitchell McGirk"), and the record turns up occasionally interesting, occasionally silly, and mostly unappealing. ~ Nitsuh Abebe, All Music Guide
