Synopsis

Product Description
Already commercially successful as tunesmiths for teenyboppers, Austin Grasmere and Brian Elliot approached Bernard Stollman looking to focus their talents on something more original and unrestrained. Stollman asked, What would be your theme? and Elliot replied: Everything is one. Stollman said, Go do it. What followed was Cromagnon's (Grasmere, Elliot and the Connecticut Tribe) non-linear journey through the subconscious, weaving together bizarre instrumentation and meter with a psychoticblending of musical styles. Bagpipes, pounding percussion, blood-curdling yelps, chanting, laughing, and billowing subterranean rumblings create the otherworldly soundscape that is Cave Rock. Heralded as one of the best freak-out records of all time, Cave Rock was ridiculously ahead of its time and brings to mind the savage sound-fuckery of Nurse With Wound and Throbbing Gristle as well as the hallucinations of early Red Krayola.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Out to the outer limits we go, my friends. Cromagnon Cave Rock is what is says it is. Cromagnon Cave Rock.

This is 1969 freakout music. Cave rock starts with bagpipes, but continues, formlessly, with screams, grunts, all kinds of instrumental noises, beating on drums, cries, orgasms, any kind of verbal noise, except langauge, you can think of, all to a free form musical backround.

This is not the experiments of John and Yoko, John Cage, or any other avant-intellect you can imagine. Plain and simple, it is primal noise on primal instinct.

I'll make it simple for you and complex for the Cromagnon.

Get CD. CD GOOD!"
