Don't Be a Penguin
Don't Be a Penguin is the first of four Magnet albums. It features the drumming of Moe Tucker from the Velvet Underground. The songs were written around her classic stand-up style of drumming, and they range from a driving sound like 'Julie' to a mellow country vibe on 'Banger.' Moe enjoyed recording the album and liked the final product enough to go out and do a couple of tours with Magnet in 1997. 'Summer & Winter' is a cover of an Anne Summers song that features a duet with Moe....'You once told me you'd save the world...You once told me...you'd marry Traci Lords..' If you are a fan of the Velvet Underground, I hope you will appreciate this album. M.
