The Taller You Are, The Shorter You Get
The man behind the eyebrow-raising moniker first revealed his unique musical vision in 1985 with My Dad is Dead...And He's Not Gonna Take it Anymore. Mark Edwards and his rotating cast of bandmates and rhythm machines have consistently released original albums of stark, personal, thinking-person's rock music ever since. But nothing can quite approach the heights of 1989's The Taller You Are, The Shorter You Get, in which Edwards packs gleaming melodies on top of monstrous tension in song after song for a full 72 minutes.
