Seems to be Tuesday again.

EPISODE 3: Guapo's Towers Open Fire


Before Guapo was what we might describe as a Zeuhl band, they were, well, something else.  It's hard to say for sure.  Their first three or 4 albums are wild, noisy metallic rock that probably has no grounding whatsoever in music theory.  The bass is slightly nasal, with scooped out mids and a healthy (or unhealthy, depending on the food group) crusty coating.  There are even vocals (Shocked), although what the lyrics are or if they are even in a real language is beyond me.  This is the kind of music that will make your mother/roommate/neighbour/significant other ask "What the hell are you listening to?"




By the way, (I think at least) this album is WAY better than the rating on this site would suggest... but if you look at who reviewed it, maybe it's rating isn't very surprising.

Until next week, always and forever CLOMP CLOMP CLOMP.

Nice, the second track reminds me of Koenjihyakkei a bit.

Karnivol's Sound Awake has some pretty wicked bass.

Today's episode is brought to you by Moshkito, who loves metal.

With each release, Russian Circles has gotten dirtier, denser, and waller of sound.  Geneva is a sadly underlooked album of theirs, featuring a striking blend of crushingly heavy distorted guitar, bass and drums, and smooth posty ambiance.  The ridiculously low and loud bass absolutely grinds.  At times it sounds slick, like a string section, and at other times it's closer to a low-flying Boeing.
I could have just as easily gone with their most recent effort, Empros (which by the way is magnificent), but figured Geneva was a better culmination of the ugliness they had been starting to hint at with Station.  Enjoy.



Sorry Youtube's quality blows, I didn't feel like uploading a better copy than this guy's video.


Until next week, don't forget to JUMBARUMBADUMGHSGD


Interesting, this track is almost re-done in Empros (let me look out the title). It's interesting coz at the time I didn't like Geneva and at the time Empros came out I heard no connection to Geneva because I had completely forgotten how it sounds.

Someday you might listen to Holger Czukay's first two solo albums. Gives the bass effects and use a completely different meaning ... ohhh merde ... wrong  forum!Big smile
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

...


Actually this was very nice and enjoyable. I'll be checking out some more.

Kinda nice to get the ears' wax cleaned off once in a while, and that was worth it!

The Guapo stuff is interesting. Kinda reminds me of the early days Neu and Kraftwerk (before their hits) when it seemed like they were just experimenting with the effects and its sounds. Very different. 

Primus is an interesting band, that I have to give a better listen to. I have not enjoyed their work much, but I will admit I have not listened to it in detail. Most of it has been a snipet here or there and it's difficult to get a good listen about the band on that, for me.

I'm seeing if I can add to this from my collection ... but it might just be a few pieces here and there. I keep thinking that if I look up Michael Rother, or Roedelius, and some of those folks, that more will show up as well, though not as recent as the examples you have demonstrated so far.

Yeah, sure.

EPISODE 4: Jean Louis' Morse



It's jazz, but not as we know it.

Long a Shred Room favourite, Jean Louis is a 3-piece band consisting of trumpet, bass and drums.  The instruments are so swaddled in effects that it's often difficult to identify which is which.  Bassist Joachim Florent gets down and dirty, and grooves out more than I would ever think a white man can.  Where their debut is smoother and more hypnotizing, their sophomore effort Morse is grungy, ugly and pretty much all over the map.

I was about to say instrumental, but a dog sings some on this album.

Enjoy.






p.s. somebody tell Rob that it's inappropriate for a prog reviewer with 20x weighting to give out 1 stars willy-nilly to things he has only heard once
