Arizona's finest (shut-up Sun City Girls, I'll get to you later). At times rockabillied, some Talking Heads speak, lots of neat guitar and swiftly paced. Fried in southwestern suns. Bro on bro action. Strange that I've never heard another Meat Pup album.
Zoshoku: Japanese for "Xoo Multiples". Gives off the smell of 80's Bowie or maybe a whiff of Eno/Roxy. Has that goofball aesthetic that Japan specializes in, with Nintendoughy admen non-sensing on interludes. Dance to it.
Drone alert! Flynt rocked the 4 string neck guitar, aka the violin. Jacked up and whacked out. Hillbilly drone, its called, often devolving into a hoedown feel. 2 cd long tracks on this future philosopher's reissue. "Everlovin'" is 40+ mins of intense Indian-ish drone, "Celestial" the more jaunty of the two.
A grab bag from "can you say Chi-city"'s finest label. Stray slay tracks from a few forgotten/unknown/one no-hit wonder bands: "Ike" by Fruitcake, "Funky Future Train" by King Kong. The prize: misplaced songs by Smog, Silver Jews, Pavement, Trux. "If it sounds good in my car, it must be a hit".
Michio Kurihara - he's been playing the same fucking solo for the past 2+ decades, apparently. Over solo affairs, Damon+Naomi hookups, double teams with Boris and, of course of course, Ghost. I wouldn't any other way. Wacked out solos and that hilarious effect of You Ishihara singing Engrish. Throwing the hammer down from word:one and ain't not letting up. Another classique like Raphael Saadiq, care of PSF Records.
Uncle Lou is back and worse than ever, teeming with Metallica in the worst disaster since the Hindenburg knocked down the Twin Towers on Pearl Harbor Day. Or so I've heard. If you agree with all those criticks, perhaps dabble in this 3cd set of live, sinewy, hissed VU deliciousness. The fat has been seperated and discarded and Louie Louie can stretch out, taking classics like Sister Ray or Follow the Leader on extended drives thru the Midwest and West Coast. Do you have an hour or three to spend with this asshole? Sure you do.
Un-findable by googly searches. I know Tara from Fur Saxa was a prelim partner in the squad. Ya know what that means... Droney, children alone in their bedrooms w/out dinner type proclamations. A cool lo-fied Siltbreezed tuneage, can Tom Lax do no wrong?
