Amoeba Review

Peter Ivers was one of those artists who was truly ahead of his time. Skirting genres and flouting songwriting conventions, the late Ivers crafted his own alchemical blend of glam, punk, and indie that was too bonkers for mainstream tastemakers. However, today’s fans of iconoclastic, outsider artists should find Becoming Peter Ivers is a treat. It’s a goofy, dreamy collection of songs spanning his unjustly forgotten musical career that’s guaranteed to drum up cult interest. Fun fact/selling point: Peter Ivers wrote the creepy, compelling song sung by the Lady in the Radiator in David Lynch’s Eraserhead.
