“It is the artist’s duty to be alive
To drag people into glittering occupations
To assume the ecstasy in all conceivable attitudes
To blush perpetually in gaping innocence
To drift happily through the ruined race-intelligence
To burrow beneath the subconscious
To defend the unreal at the cost of his reason
To obey each outrageous impulse
To commit his company to all enchantments.”
~ Kenneth Patchen
Having a Zappa in the seventies vibe, the wonderfully named “Catastrophic Molt” is the latest release from The Walking Faces, a two piece combo featuring Rumbles regular 5-Track (guitar bass, vocs) and Patrick Lenon (drums). Clocking in at just 27 minutes, not a moment of that time is wasted as angular guitar riffs and melodic vocal lines jostle for position, the music inventive and engaging throughout. Highlights include the Fusion inspired “Jose Pedro” and the more experimental “Cat and Bird”, but really the whole thing rolls together perfectly, creating a half hour well spent.
a gentle & lovely review from Terrascope Online. thanks!
This clip features Josh Charney special-guesting on keys. Isn’t he wonderful? Hopefully he’ll be back for more soon, cos this was fun.
