LATEST UPDATE 5/12 Frank Zappa - Sinister Footwear II

"Sinister Footwear II" features guitar solos, classical keyboard lines, synclavier supplements, percussive additions in the "Black Page" tradition, and quite a bit more. This is the sort of piece which tends to dominate the listener, rather than vice versa... in this case, this has to be considered a good thing. Sinister Footwear is fairly typical of Frank Zappa's forays into contemporary orchestral music: both musically complex and cartoon-like at the same time. And it has a silly name. As was often the case with Zappa's music, Sinister Footwear started life as a collection of little musical fragments of enormous complexity that FZ would insert in the middle of otherwise “stupid songs” with his touring rock bands. Eventually these fragments were incorporated into a three movement ballet which premiered in 1984 by the Berkeley Symphony.

“Face Pollution” is a brief, angular heavy metal assault that is extremely catchy, fast (*drum roll* FACE PO–LU–TION!! *drum roll* FACE PO–LU–TION!!), and has a lot energy.

Cornell had a specific death in mind when he wrote the seven-minute coda of "Superunknown." "I was writing the music to that in may basement when I heard this loud thump from above," Cornell told Melody Maker in 1994. "When I got to the door, there was this beautiful female robin writhing on the ground. She'd broken her neck flying into the window. It was obviously broken, flipped back…"  Cameron's drums start out front, marking time, bass is next, growling, cresting guitars follow, finally Cornell comes in with a steady tenor, singing, "dazed out in a garden bed with a broken neck lays my broken gift." Thayil and his ax go on full attack from there. Later, as the music swirls, he sings, "She lived like a murder but she died / just like suicide."

 

UPDATE note: if you already DL'ed the old version, this one will not replace it. Please delete the old one.

Cool stuff with the Soundgarden and Mastodon offerings! Thank you, AFJone23!

As much as I dig and appreciate all you and your partners in crime have done with these, I gotta admit I'm startin' to jones on 'Wonder Wednesday's' :)  

Hopefully, it won't be too much longer before you decide to revisit that endeavor. :D


You may think the stuff I bring is 'cheesy' but ask yourself this......is it american or is it brie?

For my sanity I cut down from 3 weekly releases to 1 with sporadic releases whenever I get around to it. Mr. Wonder's work was very time consuming so I needed a rest but yes he will be back I promise you :)

More Soundgarden on the way this weekend. I wish it didn't take the death of an artist to light a fire under my butt but at least it's getting done and Chris deserves the effort.

I agree more Soundgarden and a late thank you for the ones already. Chris was totally a class act. An awesome voice like that, holy hell, how can anyone not miss him. R.I.P. His memory will always live on.

“Zero Chance,” is a mathematical puzzle that goes 11/8, 11/8, 15/8 to 11/8, 11/8, 9/8 to 4/4 and 5/4, and that just brings us to just after the first snare drum crack, but it’s not math that makes the song amazing, it’s the visceral impact of the song, the emotion it packs within what would otherwise feel like an exercise.

A thing of otherworldly, unsettling grace, Soundgarden never recorded anything else quite like “Head Down,” though it could certainly be located as a genesis point for some of the explorations that would later occur on Down On The Upside. Superunknown is a primarily dark affair, not as screeching or hard-edged as Badmotorfinger, but plenty grinding and despairing in its own ways. “Head Down” is too unnerving to be considered a moment of lightness from all that, but it feels like a detour that simultaneously deepens the character of the album. It was with psychedelic tracks like this that Soundgarden marked the borders of their new expansive sound. It glides rather than thrashes, but it seeps out of the same darkened mind and heart as the rest of Superunknown. “We hear you cry/ We hear you wail/ We steal that smile from your face,” Cornell sings, later ending the song with “Head down, head down, head down, hide that smile/ Head high, head high, head high, you got to smile.” It’s all delivered in a smooth, almost-detached lilt, proving that sometimes the best way to be haunting is not through heavy guitars and screams, but through the misleading sweetness of a strangely tuned guitar and an enticing rhythm.
