The Price

Wax Mannequin
The Price
(Coqi Records)
Hamilton’s self-proclaimed President of Indie Rock is a one-man absurdist rock opera. His passionate, gravelly voice evokes Jesus Christ Superstar at times and allows for abnormal suspension of disbelief as he delivers ridiculous lyrics. Lines like “he cooks Christ’s medicine in his cock” and “shoot some diamonds and sparks from your torso” ride atop stellar over-production, allowing for speculation this guy is for real as Wax deliberately hammers metaphor after clumsy metaphor into the ground.
