Overview

Although the Sneetches existed in some form or another for well over a decade, they were never quite a full-time proposition, and their curious release schedule is full of anomalies and placeholders. The vinyl-only release Starfucker (named, for no readily apparent reason, after the original title of the Rolling Stones' "Star Star") is one of them. Originally recorded in early 1994 as demos for their album Blow Out the Sun, none of these songs actually made the LP cut, so the Bus Stop label thoughtfully collected them for the Sneetches completist. Being demos, these songs are a little less pristinely produced than their proper albums, though surprisingly not by much. The group's trademark harmonies are in full bloom, and an uncharacteristically rocking side appears in a few cuts, especially the brash cover of "Watch Me Burn," an obscure post-Easybeats smoker by Harry Vanda and George Young. Another highlight is the sweet but slightly sinister "Come Along With Me," a catchy invitation to dump one's present significant other and run away with the singer. The Sneetches' final release (although they didn't officially announce their split for years, until singer/songwriter Mike Levy finally released a solo album in 2000), Starfucker ends the Sneetches story on a mildly equivocal but satisfying note.
