Cereal Killers (1991)
TMJ’s third album, and first recorded for Giant/Warner. Produced by Paul Fox, who had just finished XTC’s Oranges and Lemons, which we liked a lot. Album title and artwork cobbled together hastily after label rejected the original packaging — it was called Despair, Inc., and featured generic executives in a board room looking at charts. Label was afraid people might think the four racially diverse, suit-wearing, thirty- and forty-somethings in the boardroom were the actual band members.
But the band had a blast spending $150,000 trying to make the record they’d been hearing int heir heads for years.
