- Buried Love: From sipping iced tea and playing Al Green to imagining you're watching Ricky beat Lucy, Village Voice, March 1, 2005. Accessed May 12, 2008. "Clem Snide's Eef Barzelay has a dry voice and an even drier wit. Barzelay was born in Israel, raised in Teaneck, New Jersey, and did time studying jazz at Berklee before dropping out to start a noise-rock band named for the talking asshole in William Burroughs's Naked Lunch."
