Y es, there’s always that feeling of emptiness after Juneteenth is over. All the planning, the decorations, the papier-mache figures of little Texas lawmakers, now just distant memories to be trundled back into the attic until next year, alongside the swelling boxes marked Blanksgiving and St. Blackenstein’s Day. In the interim, the following expressions are now off limits for everybody: Yo, Word Up, Don’t Believe The Hype, Yeeahh Boy, Who Dat Tryin’ To Be Bad and Chill. But especially for Chris Frantz. I didn’t think there was a way for “Genius of Love” to sound bad, but they found a way and then rolled in that way like a dog rolling in the turd of another dog rolls. (Wordy Rappinghood isn’t nearly that bad, for some reason.) As for the two remixes of “Call of the Wild,” eh. You’d think that half of the Heads would have added up to more than this, but I had the same hopes for the remaining 80% of The B-52s and look what happened. Unless you’re a collector, don’t answer the call.
