The Masterfully Stomach-Turning Forehead Blessing Music
Aaron Henson | Monmouth, Illinois USA | 09/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let it be known, that Idiot FLesh was indeed a band like no other. I eagerly look foward to the online release of THE SLEEPYTIME GORILLAS MUSEUM (Nils Frykdahl's and Dan Rathbun's new band) CD. This collection of musical malladies is called by many reviewers as a more chaotic form of the Idiot Flesh recipe, and it without a doubt will be nothing short of masterful.
Idiot Flesh's sound blends odd musical ends that most would find during the writing process tedious and overwhelming. Their odd off-beat take on rock mixed with cabaret musical styles, home made musical instruments (King of Basses, Percussion Guitar, etc), 20+ dancers, flamer breathers, freaks and idiots dancing like insane "chickens" on stage, makes for an almost holy musical experience. It's a tragedy and a crime that this band is broken up, but according to Vaccination Records, they will be reforming in the near future to release their third official album, so LOOK FOR IT! ...."
Too bad they broke up . . .

"One of the more original and fun bands to come out since Mr. Bungle. If you are sad they broke up, check out "Eat" by Charming Hostess. The guitarist, bassist, and drummer teamed up with a Jewish womens accapella group to form a unique blend of exotic rock. Don't expect "eat" to be another idiot flesh album; it's not as zany, but it is just as virtuosic and original"
Romping musical mayhem

"Idiot Flesh's second recorded cd. And oh my god does it shake the walls. A lot darker than their previous cd, Nothing Show. Kicking off with 'Dead Like Us,' once you learn the lyrics you too will joyously sing along with the raucous crows in the background. many of the songs stretch out well beyond the 5 minute mark. Rather than being a tedious listen each such track takes you on a wildly magnificent, extravagent ride. The music is layered with so many instruments that only repeated listens will do the album its full justice. If for no other reason this album should be bought for track ten 'The Straw,' an epic masterpiece taking words from the T.S. Eliot poem "The hollow Men" for lyrics. Unique, brilliant, one-of-a-kind, there will never be another band like Idiot Flesh. For those wanting to complete their collection of Idiot Flesh recordings also purchase Funny Rubber Hand and Rawk Party for the songs Monkey and Let the Dog Sing."
