Song Notes: Thirteen Ugly Children Roll Gutterballs: The bonus track from their last studio album (to date, anyway -- Too Much Joy haven't ever broken up, but they've gone into other bands, like Wonderlick), ...finally. One of my all-time favorite TMJ songs, actually—it really does capture a sense of loss in the lyrics. It's one of the saddest songs I know about having sex. (Well, it's about more than that, too, but... you have to admit "And you sounded like you gave up/when you let out that sigh" isn't the cheeriest way of putting things.) Too Much Joy is one of those bands that's a footnote of a bunch of interesting stories; they were sued by Bozo the Clown, they went to jail for performing 2 Live Crew songs in Florida, and they were the providers of an internal Republican Party Theme Song with "Theme Song" from Cereal Killers, despite that 3/4 of the band were pretty solidly not-Republican. (They'd get into fights with Tommy Vinton, the drummer, who was both NYPD and Republican, over politics.) Actually, the cover art for ...finally turned the Republican Party against them a bit, since it featured a teenaged couple in bed, after sex, with a fold-down panel depicting their nude bodies. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
