CD Reviews

Thorougly modern, intense music by an avant- gard Supergroup
Michael Lerch | Upstate NY | 08/22/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not going to even try to be all clever about this review. I don't know thirty modern rock and world music bands or musicians I can name-drop here. Here it is: if you're tired of hearing the same old same old, get this CD. You'll be treated to a fair handful of completely improvised performances. The tunes composed ahead of time are unlike anything you'll ever hear on a "normal" alubm. The playing throughout is impeccable, though never staid or held back. There's risks being taken here. How refreshing! I am definitely reminded of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band at times. "Who?", you say? Man are you in for a pleasant surprise. Believe it or not, this is a supergroup; each member has come to fame with other bands or through his own solo career. Get them all together and in the mood to play and what you end up with is the magic on this disc. It's not for everyone, but again if you want to hear something that actually challenges your ear yet leaves you shaking your butt and singing along, you've found it."
Supergroup? You bet!

"The review left by Michael Lerch below (way back in 1998!) described the music pretty well, but just left one important tidbit out: Who the members of the "supergroup" are. Here you go: Henry Kaiser (guitar; solo, French-Frith-Kaiser-Thompson, w/Glenn Phillips, etc), Mike Keneally (guitar, keyboards, vocals, etc; solo, 80's Frank Zappa, etc), Andy West (bass, Dixie Dregs) and Prairie Prince (drums, The Tubes). Fantastic musicians all. There outta be more sessions like these!"
