Show Business Giants
Maybe It's Just Me

 

These guys need no introduction to NoMeansNo afacionados - NMN guitarist Tom Holliston's side project, hilarious, musically brilliant. With a revolving cast that has included such luminaries as Scott Henderson, John Wright, Ford Pier, and more.

They say genius is often misunderstood. For instance, Albert Einstein worked at a patent office until he finally stole the theory of relativity from a Dr. Smith and then ran off with the formulas. Fame naturally followed him, despite slamming God's head in an oven and stealing the formula for life on earth. The Show Business Giants are very much in the same boat as Einstein, only with somewhat shorter hair and less theft. Maybe It's Just Me is one of the two relatively easy to find discs by the Giants and is probably the best example of the band at their zany best. But even the most adventurous listeners are advised to give this one awhile to sink in. It's like calculus. On a whole, it's a mystifying entity, but if you break down into chapters and digest a little at a time, it makes sense. To a degree. I still haven't touched calculus since taking it as a freshman in college. In fact, all I ever needed to know was the arithmetic they taught me in grade school. Maybe it's just me, but I never built a bridge with calculus.
