"...Fishcoteque is far better than the last LP with former collaborator Max Eider. Called Big Questions (The Gift of Music Volume 2)...Butch's lounge-parody affectations slipped dreadfully close to genuine schlock."
Genuine schlock, are you kidding? There might be a bit of novelty appeal to cuts like "Olaf Palme", but it's a goddamn finely crafted song - as are most of the selections from BQ. "Big Old Wind" is one of Pat's best songs ever. Not to knock Fishcotheque, which itself is a great disk, but such a jab is outright crazy.
