Bring on the Snakes, originally released in 2001, is the sophomore album by Crooked Fingers. On vinyl now for the first time, the package features an essay by The Nationalís Matt Berninger. Also included is a download of the full album plus bonus demos of each track. In his liner notes, Berninger writes: I had been a fan of Eric Bachmannís songs since the first Archers of Loaf record, Icky Mettle, but here I felt he was after something different, something intimate and important. His writing was inspired. It sounded to me like Byron, drunk at a party, talking to some girl about a different girl that he was in love with. I remember thinking, This guy reads a lot more than I do. The vocal and guitar melodies were unbelievably lovely, and his lyrics careened from crushingly sad to self-lacerating to hilarious. The record achieves that strange, special magic: itís catchy, visceral, and emotionally devastating.
