Cyberfunk creations from Bootsy Collins and Bill Laswell, driving funk into the territories of ambient, hardcore, techno, and beyond with Buckethead and Bernie Worrell. Think of this as Funkadelic meets Praxis. Over the years, Bootsy and Bill Laswell have developed an intimate working relationship that has spanned projects for artists as diverse as Material, Herbie Hancock, Sly & Robbie, Praxis, Axiom Funk, Ryuichi Sakamoto, several solo releases for Bootsy, Bernie Worrell and George Clinton, and countless others. The original release of Lord of the Harvest was quickly heralded as the most adventurous Bootsy/Laswell collaboration to date, as it fearlessly burst into new areas of sound, aided and abetted by mutant fretmeister Buckethead, whose twisted guitar acrobatics are most recently well-known among Guns 'n' Roses fans. Hip-hop heads in the know will recognize the presence of some true originators-the Last Poets' Umar Bin Hassan and rap forefather Grandmaster Melle Mel. A listen to the newly remastered version will only confirm how far these innovators have been ahead of the pack.

Boosty Collins and his alter egos: Fuzz Face and Zillatron

"Lord of the Harvest (1994) was an interesting and hihgly addictive album from Bootsy Collins,Bernie Worrell, Bill Laswell and BucketHead (guitar vituroso). The concept album deals with the life of Bootsy and his alter egos Zillatron and Fuzz Face. Filled with rockin' guitar riffs, heavy basslines, samples, electronica and beats. The lyrics and music will keep you listening to this disc for the next several days. Fun music that's not to be taken TOO seriously. Bootsy needs to revisit the world of Zillatron.
Highly recommended, go out and buy a copy. You will not be disappointed."
With a name like Zillatron, what else do I need to say?

"For all of us who love senseless excess in bass, kick drum, and guitar, this album is outstanding. For those who are scared off by the album picure, trust your instincts! You can't take your music too seriously when listening to this masterpiece."

"the only problem with the disc is that it's a little quiet and could use a good remastering.the only good thing about it is,well,everything.if you like most the work of praxis,buckethead,and the other weirder"new funk" projects this'll be right up your alley.(hell,get it for the many sound bits from the david cronenberg film"naked lunch"that appear throughout the entire album-if anything!)just beware when you hear"hey,we came here to see YOU bill!"-that's when buckethead says"I'm here!"as only he can!!!"
