...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Genre Peak review (OK, he's not English)

http://jpsmusicblog.blogspot.com/2016/04/cd-review-b-movie-brings-on-climate-of.html


U.K. songwriter/vocalist Martin Birke recently released his latest collaboration under the moniker Genre Peak. The new album titled "Your Sleekest Engine" features his work alongside Steve Jansen (Japan/David Sylvian), Jon Hassell (Brian Eno/Peter Gabriel), Richard Barbieri (Japan/Porcupine Tree) and Matt Malley (Counting Crows). 

The new nine-song release begins with the atmospheric, prog-rock feel of "Nightfalls" with lyrics and vocals by Lesley Braden. Birke incorporates a dance beat into "Denzen Darklight," before slowing the tempo down for the spacey, soundscape of "Metanoa." Birke plays around with the rhythms of "American Civil Rage," before the pounding of "Fix Me Deeper," featuring spoken word vocals from Manal Deeb. The album closes with the addictive, electronic pop beats of "The Waiting Station" as Charlie Woodward (Falco) delivers the vocals. To find out more about Genre Peak and his lastest release "Your Sleekest Engine," please visit genrepeak.net.
