Quasi: Featuring "Birds"

Eric Weisbard, The Village Voice, 10 June 1998

QUASI CAN play with your ears. Sam Coomes has a '70s electric keyboard that he says he bought for $50; it's called a Roxichord, short for rocking harpsichord, and he's wont to rub his body all over it. Makes it dance with an unpredictable veer, creating an organ-grinder version of the 'What'd I Say' jam.
