Eels - Meet The Eels - Useless Trinkets... (Geffen) 21/01/2008
to coincide with their first "best of" compilation (reviewed
by ourselves below), this is something of a treat. Pitched as 'B-sides,
Soundtracks, Rarities and Unreleased (1996-2006)', or otherwise "Useless
Trinkets", this 3-disc set is in fact far from it. A 'must'
for fans of this band, whose ever changing line-up of musicians collected
together to play the songs of singer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist
Mark Oliver Everett, or just 'E' to those who have been 'touched' is
far from being considered a "useless" project. 2
CD's and a DVD works to bring together 50 audio tunes of work of the
highest quality and alternative variety, as well as 6 video playbacks
of the band's "Lollapalooza" set from 2006, including a vocal,
guitar and tambourine contribution from the guy in the 'security' T-shirt.
