Mick Farren/Jack Lancaster - 'Deathray Tapes' (Alive)
Mike Reed | USA | 12/18/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)
"I guess on 'Deathray Tapes',Deviants vocalist Mick Farren is trying his hand at poetry.In this case,it IS most apparent that 'spoken word' albums are NOT for everyone.Ten tracks and a running time of just a hair under 70 minutes.That was 40 minutes too long.I tried to get into this one-time gig that was recorded at a bar in Santa Monica in June,1995,but I just simply could not.The only two cuts that even held my attention were the opener "Disgruntled Employee" and the eighteen-minute "Memphis Psychosis",which is fair.At least Farren had other musicians on stage with him,Jack Lancaster on sax,Andy Colquhoun on bass and Wayne Kramer on guitar.He should have at least played some actual tunes.For die hards ONLY."
