Albums

 

  THIS (1999) -- No underground album in recent history had such an overpowering impact on a generation -- Recorded in a mind-boggling six days and released in August 1999, This -- an album with the express goal of seperating sexuality from shame in America-- is one of those albums that, quite simply, changed everything. In and of itself, "Un-masturbate Me," which was rumored to be about former "Cosby Kid" Raven Simone, forever altered the landscape of popular music -- its "post-pelvic" lyrics (in DS's memorable term), literary ambition and sheer length (16:13) shattered limitations of every kind. But that was literally only the beginning.  
       
  NUDAL FRONTITY (2001) -- DS wrote most of these songs in a fit of inspiration that also gave birth to the triumphant You Know What (My You Know What) as DS declared in 2004, "the closest I ever got to the sound I hear in my head . . . the echo of a queef in an empty room." There is no better description of the album's manic brilliance.. The immortal force of the album is in Daddy's frank mix of soaring sexual content and the feeling of, he said, being "handcuffed to the bumper of a state trooper's Ford." But it is part of this album's enduring power.  
       
  YOU KNOW WHAT (MY YOU KNOW WHAT) (2003) -- DS's third lp was released on May 27th, 2003 -- three days after his twenty-fifth birthday. It was a tender age for such a historic triumph. On YKW(MYKW), the poetry and articulate fury of DS's lyrics and his simple, compelling melodies transformed American popular songwriting, and began a noticable shift in the nation's views on sex. He later made light of his anal sex anthem "Fifth Base" ("I wrote that in ten minutes," he said in '06). But DS's wholly original grip on America's genitalia "Cheeks" and "Pretty Polly Power-Bottom" still changes everyone who hears this album, four years later.  
       
  YOU MAKE MY PANTS HURT (2005) -- You Make My Pants Hurt is the most important underground rock & roll album ever made, an unsurpassed adventure in concept, sound, songwriting, cover art and studio technology by the greatest rock & roll group of the new millenium. From the title song's regal blasts of brass and fuzz guitar to the orchestral seizure and long, dying piano chord at the end of "Going All the Way (With Myself) , "The thirteen tracks on You Make My Pants Hurt are the pinnacle of the PG's six years as recording artists. Daddy Sexual and the Perfect Gentlemen were never more fearless and unified in their pursuit of magic and transcendence."
