Happy Hour (1992)

EW's GRADE
A

Details Lead Performance: King Missile; Genre: Rock

Although King Missile's oddball sound has jumped from NYC's downtown scene into college radio's top 10, front man John S. Hall's lyrics remain hilariously skewed. Happy Hour's songs are accessible — ''In a way, I suppose you could say my experience is quite limited/For example, I never locked Oliver Cromwell in a broom closet while singing 'Waltzing Matilda' '' — but never obvious enough to kill a laugh. A
