2001 notes about cupid's cactus:
After two self-released CDs, two more on world-famous indie imprint Matador, and a cottage industry's worth of singles and compilation appearances, Fuck has come to SLR to release their latest full-length album, Cupid's Cactus. With stylistic nods to out-rock architects like Can and Meat Puppets, and a pop sense that owes as much to the Platters as the Pixies, the album hazily unfolds it's majestic mojo in a 35-minute, 15-song serenade of soulful indie rock. The production boasts a bone-dry intimacy, and the performances — the twin-guitar click-and-drone, whispered vox, and unique hat-bass dances — make the band's best case yet for the supremacy of subtlety, space, and inspired song-sense within the rock idiom.
