3 stars 1971 is a definitely one of innovative years for progressive rock, especially Krautorkc scene, let me say.

It's said MAHOGANY BRAIN were a musical representation by a French poet Michel BULTEAU, in collaboration with lots of studio musicians, and I guess this album "With (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger)" can be considered as a Michel's one-man show with instruments launching flexible, improvisational sound spice here and there.

The core of this album is produced with quite unrefined, scattered sound effects based upon Michel's funky, funny, and cheesy voices and meaningless word obscurity. Easily imagined that he might have played with making self-assertion one-sidedly like usual French theatres or movies, but mysteriously, his fishy words / lyrics can be pretty harmonized (of course fragilely!) with instrumental improvisation around him, that may be heard as a loose session with lazy percussion, a deep-flavoured bass, a sharp-edged violin, a trip-hopping piano, an easygoing guitar, and a crazily crying flute (played by Michel). And more mysteriously, these eccentric sounds / tunes can strike just a chord in our minds and absorb us comprehensively ... yes, this phenomenon should be mentioned as an innovation born in 1971.

"With (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger)" is one of miracles not only in French rock scene but also in Krautorck. Not easily recommended for every melodic Krautrock fan who likes Amon Duul II or Can, but his trippy, holier-than-thou attitude for rock can be told from generation to generation I guess ... a bit overeastimated? No, no, a classic one.
