Pic on the cover’s backside is either a woman with no curves or a little girl in a striped bathing suit, with one hand in a masturbatory position… the other hand’s got a book with a cover pic of a bearded guy’s face where hers would be. Inside the case’s a pic of a curvier woman wearing the same striped one-piece, posing provocatively – this time you can see the face and that’s not a good thing, as it looks like Urkel in a poufy blonde wig. Front of the recent vinyl EP has a watercolor of two cougar-ish, swimsuited gals – neither has either hand in a masturbatory position. Unnatural Helper’s Myspace pic is hairy man-legs wearing high heels.

Artist: Unnatural Helpers
Song: Sunshine / Pretty Girls

From these bits of evidence, and lyrics that rant about loving girls, lusting after girls, being made jealous by girls, and bristling to be free for more girls, I glean an obsession with women and girls. Yay! Or, more precisely, since this is creative, imaginatively arranged, impatient heartbreak/f…k rock, propelled by Dean Whitmore’s David Byrne/Richard Hell/Joe Strummer-tinged vocals (with David Johansen attitude), it’s almost a Christmas-in-July clearance sale. “Yay!” While “Sunshine/Pretty Girls,” “I Don’t Belong To You,” “Head Collector,” “Tell Me That You Wanna,” and “She Was Your Girlfriend” have me banging the typewriter keys especially hard, this is a case where “It’s all good” isn’t even close to an ambivalent shoulder-shrug.
