Act Retarded!



Retarded Lo-Fi-Garage-Pop for Retarded People (2007-2009)

Retarded teenagers often listen to this music to cope with the pressures associated with being retarded, according to research.
The results of a study of more than 1,000 of the most retarded five per cent of young people will come as relief to parents whose offspring are devotees of Nobunny, Thomas Function and their musical descendants.
Researchers found that, far from being a sign of cleverness and strong academic ability, many adolescent "lofigaragepopheads" are extremely silly and often use the music to help them deal with the stresses and strains of being retarded. (Telegraph.co.uk)

tracklist:

1. Nodzzz - Losing My Accent
2. Smith Westerns - The Glam Goddess
3. Intelligence - Warm Transfers
4. Nobunny - Mess Me Up
5. Black Lips - Katrina
6. Smith Westerns - Gimme Some Time
