witty album title, lads.  trans am still at it after almost twenty-five years or whatever.  i got bored on them after futureworld, circa 1999.  still, they put out some seminal work.  i would love to herald this record as a return to form.  instead i'm just gonna say you could be listening to worse shit in 2017.  they're playing shows these days.  i am pretty sure if i saw this live, i'd be pretty into it.  good tunes.  it kinda remind me of stuff like ota petrina, a little bit, or maybe some of the older shit they like to imitate.  anyway, nothing revolutionary here.  still, a formidable record.  not too many other records i post fit the "jock jams" taxonomy quite as thoroughly as this.

I proposed marriage to the woman who is now my wife, on a train, after we saw these guys perform.  I was like, 

It's morning, 7 o'clock you at my clinic
It's me your orthopedic, gynecologyst
You looking pretty and fine, go ahead blow my mind
Girl what's wrong come here, let me take a look
You say you got burnt, your man should've wore a rubber
What type of partners you have and who's your first lover
He never turned you around, showed you doggystyle
We got some things in common honey lets talk awhile
Did he lick you there? Perculate your atmosphere
I got a mask at home, boots and some leather gear
How about me and you and black, I'm hitting from the back
Tail in my face and all juicy brown booty
I'm the master rubber, please let me do my duty
Let me touch you
