It had been said of the Velvet Underground that they were a band to listen with a banana in each ear. Well, with Steak From Delta, change the banana to a T-bone and the adage remains true. Brujaji, the first full-length album from the band, contains 11 songs for 13 minutes. Brujaji is syncopated, nearly melodic music obtained by mincing a slide guitar, an out-of-tune guitar, some drum beats, and some false notes of a horn. On the whole, a gravy of howls, roars, and screams. The ultimate meal.
