Sometimes I Cry (1999) is Tricky Woo’s defining cult masterpiece. Yielding a “should’ve been a crossover hit” in “Fly The Orient,” Sometimes I Cry married eyeball-bursting technicolor artwork by frontman Andrew Dickson, with riffs borrowed from everyone from Funhouse-era Stooges and the MC5, to far less likely inspirations such as Uriah Heep, AC/DC and even Aerosmith. Embracing massive riffs, fuzzed-out space echo guitar, bad-vibe lyrics about electric orchards, fields of fire, falling from clouds, this was clearly no longer garage rock, or garage punk, but a kind of weird, maximum energy “acid punk”. Something like Blue Cheer’s Vincebus Eruptum played at 45rpm.
