Of particular note on Lotion's wonderful and just-plain-impossible-to-describe 1994 debut is "Head," which your dim blogger has only recently learned is about a dog; a dog who, if I understand correctly, used to be treated nicely and now has new owners who treat him like shit, so he thinks constantly of escaping. Reminds me of my own dog Ashley, who is 14, blind, deaf, and has a fine life when any of us are around. During the day he stays penned up in the kitchen, which he hates. When he hears someone come in he is so frantic to leave his prison that he rather disturbingly runs around in a circle and can't stop -- sort of like me at around 5 p.m. Ash and I are both dogs on a rope.
