Huey recorded a single Warner Bros. album in 1979: Contents Dislodged During Shipment, which, predictably, never got off the shelf. Twenty years later, they resurfaced with Disinformation, a rollicking, surrealistic 15-tracker spanning Gold's paranoid, punchy "Missing Persons," Robert Wyatt's "Little Red Riding Hood Hit the Road," and "Otis Says No," a funk workout by Gold and guitarist-vocalist Michael Aylward. Don't expect anything other than singular, idiosyncratic expertise from this band, a contemporary of the Pretenders, the Bizarros, Pere Ubu, the Rubber City Rebels, and Devo. Expect to be entertained, too, and enlightened in a most peculiar way.
