At first blush, it's easy to mistake Clem Snide for a joke band, an impression that's helped along thanks to titles like "Evil vs. Good," "The Junky Jews" and "Joan Jett of Arc." But Barzelay's punchlines are double-edged: "How could you say that?" he asks, lamenting over one of the album's many lost loves on "Ancient Chinese Secret Blues." "You just opened your mouth/Now I haven't the courage to stay/Calgon, take me away." And when he asks, "Does anybody get what they want?/What do you mean when you talk about love?" on "Ice Cube," there's no doubting his sincerity.
Clem Snide plays Smith's Olde Bar Sun., Sept. 9.
