The Small Faeces: “Small Faeces”

DNRC050 | 7″ | 2004 | DELETED

Taking both their name and the title of this, their debut single, from a song on the Sea Pigeons’ opus, The Small Faeces were always going to be living on borrowed time. This god-awful single, released only in Japan, features several Sea Pigeons members; however, responsibility for the song, a pathetic attempt to revive the style of early Rod Stewart) must surely rest with Davey Dreamnation himself, who appears here on lead vocals for the first time in several days. Reportedly recorded in a small shoebox outside the Camberwell markets in Melbourne, this song makes even The Tin Lids look respectable – even they have moved on to bigger and better things. Not so The Small Faeces, whose namesake and sole output to date can be found clogging up all the usual public conveniences: sad, deleted and slightly smelly.
