Never fails... live from those
good ole boys from up thar in mountain country!
They wheel a wicked time of goodness, arresting the most jaded of
avant-garde enthusiasts, always!! no exception here, with a beautiful
mix of sounds that spark from the raw sound of killick's varied stringed
instruments, described thus as his "microtonal glory", the h'arpeggione
(also referred to as the devil's cello) is an upright acoustic
instrument with sympathetic strings.. imagine combined with the
relentless drive of the Shakin Ray Levis- palmer reading fortunes
on powered from the other side, his synthesizor mania and the always
concurring punctuation, drive, and press of the stag on the drums.
Ofcourse, there's the interesting Dennis ad libs, monster mash,
singings and storyboard introductions that frame each piece with a
cultural imagery that only a brave explorer could return from the
outback wilderness of 'Hotlanter' and report.
Altering experience it is, and exquisitely recorded.
