Ten Inch Men? Either they’re extremely short or immensely well endowed…but let’s not ponder that, eh? For reals though, this was a Long Beach, CA quartet whom I only know of through this 12.” My impression of TIM is at minimum somewhat favorable. Some very synth-y goings-on here, but too muscular for the new romantic set. Sometimes it’s difficult to discern if the Men were striving for the coliseum or the cellar. Their scope is ambitious, a la contemporaries Then Jerico, but at moments on Hours n Pain they could’ve made a dash for considerably more interesting environs. More Ten Inch Men records were to follow, though I’ve yet to encounter them.
