HENRY PHILLIPS

LET’S GET SUICIDAL

Listening to this CD without the context from which it originates would be one of the most puzzling experiences someone could encounter. Let’s Get Suicidal is 14 songs taken from episodes of comedian Henry Phillips aka Jose Suicidio’s satire cooking YouTube webisodes, Henry’s Kitchen, and aren’t really meant to make a lot of sense. At first the tunes come off as completely random with lyrics about getting mauled by bears and busted for drugs, but after further inspection it’s clear Phillips’ brand of humour is aimed at a very niche market that can appreciate awkward, sardonic comedy.
