To be honest I had no issues with your Chicago releases. They were all lots of fun to play. It’s your drums only stuff I hope to see you tackle one day.-

LATEST UPDATE 7/25 - King Crimson - Cirkus

Video Preview

 

GUITAR/BASS: nsw1-6

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

KEYS: MrBurpler

 

"Cirkus" starts out nicely enough with a jingling piano it starts out but suddenly bursts into a Mellotron lead evil-sounding theme. Guitarist Robert Fripp evocates incredible classical style guitar playing; he spreads his nylon stringed noise throughout the song. The freaky atmosphere, intense instrumental interplay, creepy vocals, image laden lyrics, and Andy McCulloch’s fantastic drumwork combine to make this one of my favorites. And since I just mentioned him: Andy McCulloch. Probably the most underrated drummer Crimson ever had. His jazzy, precise, yet (relatively) subtle style fits the music like a glove, and never fails to impress me.

GUITAR/BASS/KEYS: bsbloom

 

"969 (The Oldest Man)" is an instrumental featuring a whole bunch of slide guitars overdubbed until they sound like a horn section, plus a tasty Herbie Mann-style flute solo (played by the versatile Cummings.) It showcases the group's instrumental chops in a much more pleasant way than your typical drum-solo driven muso crap of the time.

LATEST UPDATE 7/27 - Frank Friday's - Po-Jama People

Video Preview

 

GUITAR: ghostbyob

BASS: nsw1-6

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

"The pajama people are boring me to pieces/They make me feel like I am wasting my time." The message is clear: lifeless, dull people are not Frank Zappa's cup of tea. "Po-Jama People" is a text book example of what a two chord rock jam should sound like. Drummer Chester Thompson deserves a lot of credit for keeping the energy pumping on this one with his constant rhythmic variations, while Frank rises to the challenge with one of his best solos ever. Prior to the making of this record Frank had already established himself as a formidable guitarist, but on Pojama People he seems to have a epiphanic breakthrough and plays like a man possessed.

“Call Me a Dog” is a vocal driven, sad bluesy ballad which manages to never become mushy or boring.

GUITAR/BASS: PhantomBlade8

 

Shadows That Move is a great intro song to the album Call of the Mastodon. The vocals are great as a growl and they add to the whole song. The guitars in this sing are epic, very heavy and also fast at times. The drumming is amazing as usual with Dailor, and the bass backs everything up well.

GUITAR: ghostbyob

BASS: ejthedj

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

"Road Ladies" is a blues-rock song and the first Zappa track featuring the vocal talents of ex-Turtles Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman and the song that introduced the whole "life on the road" cycle that would obsess the guitarist for two years and lead him to his first completed movie: 200 Motels.

LATEST UPDATE 8/7 - Mastodon Monday - Elephant Man

EQf8Mj0.jpg
Video Preview
 

GUITAR/DRUMS: Chips

 
Elephant Man is an 8 minute instrumental that closes out the end of the album. The guitars layer on each other with hyper melodic solo licks and a bass part that subtly keeps it together. The drums are slowed down here and are still precise with original beats. This song features solos that are intensely melodic and again show that control and originality that distinguishes this album from typical sludge metal. The song closes out with a long silence and the sound of pouring rain, adding ambiance and they truly make the song complete.

“Wooden Jesus” is built on a revolving drum beat by Cameron with some strategically added percussion for extra effect in the intro. Later comes an interesting little banjo during second verse and great wah-wah guitar lead during the bridge.

GUITAR/BASS: PhantomBlade8

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 
"Slickleg" is a mammoth – pun intended – of a track that goes everywhere, from an acoustic intro to a traditional metal riff, blastbeats, post-rock ambiances and back again, all in the space of four short minutes. Beckoning a mammoth trapped in ice while squelching acoustic tendencies with immediate, squealing thrash riffs and drums rolling starboard.

LATEST UPDATE 8/17 - Frank Friday's - Bobby Brown

Video Preview

 

HARMONIES/VENUE: AJFOne23

 

Audio Source Lineage: 1978 Analog Master -> 2012 Remaster/UMe CD -> EAC v.99(?) -> .WAV -> Audacity (Volume/EQ adjustment)

 
Probably the only Frank Zappa song to be banned from radio airplay, this little single is probably amongst Zappa's most (and mundanely) performed tracks live. The story entails your average middle American man, Bobby, being the stereotypical male chauvanistic pig on his quest to become an over-educated shit-head. He is the American Dream. While in his studies, he comes across a product of second-wave feminism, a lesbian named Freddie, who convinces and assists him in his own castration. He is the American Dream. Now a eunuch, Bobby has gone into the entertainment biz, though many are unaware to his sexual proclivites. In the end, he descends into more sexually depraved acts, such as sitting on the Tower of Power. He is the American Dream and he's going down.
