The follow up to my post of this Downtown NY unit's eponymous debut E.P. and their Friar Tuck 7", We Are Here To Serve You finds Fish & Roses at the peak of their peculiar powers, here locating their trademark nagging tension from the friction of Sue Garner's homespun-as-a-homily vocal stylizations and the nimbly askew Etron Fou-like R.I.O. grooves she conversely helps ex-V-Effect drummer Rick Brown enact (traits she shares with Amy Denio), over which organist David Sutter plies a line in low-key lopsided whimsy with the odd side of atonal wheeze 'n' wobble. Garner would soon venture into tamer pastures on a spate of solo albums that Homestead issued in the wake of this, but the work at hand here is anything but and a real delight for anyone into this suaver dimension of R.I.O. praxis.
