Review: Poor Little Me

Chris Ballew has stack of demo tapes he have recorded since 80’s. When the Presidents go to the Studio, and start recording a new material, they’ll listen those tapes, and see if there’s something they could re-record.

Poor Little Me originates from an EGG tape “Smell Me Fist” from the late 80’s. This new 2014 version of Poor Little Me is nicely PUSAfied. I’m sure everyone will like it over the original demo.

“Chris sings ‘Kiss off boots!’ instead of ‘f*ck off boots’ lol that’s the best bit of the original.” – chrisballewrocks (from Pusa forum)

It’s catchy as any other PUSA song there is. Starts of with a yell (I won’t spoil you what the yell is), and studio laughter. Jason Finn kicks off some George Of The Jungle style of drumming,¬† and the song has some country vibe and little bit of Highway Forever mixed in. After the intro I simply can’t stop smiling, the boys are back!

Poor Little Me has a bit too obscure song structure to have a radio potential. It’s the first PUSA track to have a slide guitar? Surely the first one that has Bo Diddley beat? The Bo Diddle beat part could go little longer, but maybe the live version will have an extended part or simply use it as a bridge to another song. But that’s a different story….

Anyways…Poor Little Me is a great teaser track that makes you wanna hear more.

I will give this a score of 4,5/5

This can’t be the last PUSA album. Surely the tank isn’t empty.¬†There’s just too many great catchy songs hiding inside the vaults. Driving Rain, Emotional Cowboys, Find My Tribe, Happy Home, Memory Ball, Mr. Microphone, Joe (the Ice Cream man)…comes to my mind. Who knows, maybe one or two ends up to the “Kudos To You” album. If not, I’ll try to put some mp3 teasers later on (but don’t hold your breath) from the tapes I have.

No, I don’t have key(s) to the vault. I have used cold hard cash to obtain some rare tapes. :)

    Nice review!! I also prefer this over the EGG version.

    I’d like to hear a version of Dinnertable Breakdown done PUSA-style. I asked Chris about this last year and he had actually been thinking the same thing on that same day!! So maybe that’ll be on the new LP too! Lots of fuel left in the tank I agree with you there.

    Love it this one. I think you may well have the tape I used to own too as it’s the only one I’ve ever known of. I have a different version of this and it sounds recent with just CB singing it. I find this new album version better than the egg version but not as awesome as the solo CB version I have. I beg of PUSA to re-do Dead end lies.
