Bewitched - Hey White Homey

February 1993 Sub Pop Singles Club release. This is probably the second time I've ever listened to it. There's a reason for that. The song "Hey White Homey" is as cringe-inducing as its title. Troll Doll is far more listenable, though still far from great.

Bob Bert was Sonic Youth's drummer up through the Halloween album. Then he left to do stuff like this. OK, maybe I'm being a bit harsh. Bewitched was a side project in between other post-SY bands, which included noise-rock legends Pussy Galore and Boss Hog (both Jon Spencer acts), that's a pretty good musical legacy, so I guess he redeems himself there. But is this bad.

A: Hey White Homey
B: Troll Doll

  1. Thanks for all your work here. I have almost every single you posted. It reminds me of those days when I would just buy 20+ singles over at Pier Platters in Hoboken. As for this particular single, he did better things under this moniker. He also went on to Knoxville Girls. So, we can excuse one single especially as this style is not far from what a lot of others including the Gibson Bros an Jon Spencer were doing around this time.
