Big Cup Of Empty (Daemon Records)
New Mongrels

By Brent Starkey

It took 22 people from various bands (including Indigo Girls & Big Fish Ensemble) & locales to record 12 songs this weak. Most tunes are folky/countrified & pretty mellow. The song 'Skin & Bone' is almost tolerable (that may be a stretch), but there's not much else to recommend from this mediocre, minor-league affair........... Yawn.
