Description

Boyish Hips on CD

'Boyish Hips' (1997) - On this, his first c.d., Randy uses guitar, harmonica, piano, Fender Rhodes, and pots & pans as percussion instruments to orchestrate a joyful, Caribbeanesque sound. Created on a 4-track cassette recorder, this deceptively light collection of songs includes 'Slow Eater', in which a man denies being a binger and instead blames others for eating too slowly and too sparsely. In 'Everyone I See', a man employs skewed logic to defend his inability to commit himself to one woman. 'Coach Joe' tells the story of the life and death of a sexual predator. In 'Ten Page Letter', a woman demands 'action not words' from a man who can do nothing about his feelings but express them in letters. 'Send For Our Stuff' is both a love song and a tribute to the naive beauty of Los Angeles, seen here as a place where one's innocence may be renewed. The confessional poem 'Live Tigers' is set to piano and nylon-string guitar music for the record's final track. This experimental album is full of lyrical and emotional minefields and fraught with neurotic wit, unbridled perplexity, and desperate passions. The narrators of these songs have insatiable cravings for sex, food, love, and, sometimes, self-destruction. ___ REVIEWS OF BOYISH HIPS: 'Kaplan makes us smile as he points out hypocrisy... (He crafts) exceptionally tender songs (and) pens understated tunes that, the more we hear them, eventually evolve into anthems.' -NEWSDAY / Long Island, New York 'Whether he's singing about despair or ecstasy, Kaplan's songs are bittersweet, romantic, and sometimes nostalgic. And his point of view is always original and often startling.' -THE PERDIDO PELICAN / Pensacola, Florida.
