...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.

SPIRITS BURNING: French-Canadian review translated

http://www.profilprog.com/spirits-burning-alien-heat-review

CHRONIC / REVIEW CD
Imagine the head of the columnist that I am! I am here to review the new album SPIRITS BURNING and I did not know this training, yet it is their fourteenth discography effort, the first dating from 1999 which intervened on a title someone who has done quite a way since, Mister Steven Wilson himself. It is also more of a conglomerate with variable geometry as a real group, the common twenty years is the captain, as he defines himself, Don FALCONE using as name a smoky fire "a Space Rock Collective".  

The music played by SPIRITS BURNING has this special is that we seem to participate in a giant jam session to be polite or a merry mess to be a little less polite. Some songs actually have a nice color worthy of the blue oyster, others seem straight out of the most violent and bizarre albums of HAWKWIND, others still show such a patchwork of influences it is difficult to classify, there are in there my good lady of ethnicity, the space, psychedelic, pop music of the eighties and even shades of dance music ( "in the Future" the fourth title). For fans of the New York group, we will quote the first track "Hothouse Flowers" just for the introductory guitar riff (Donald Roeser?) but also for singing, the ninth "Seven Finger Solution" or the twelfth "Learning To Art". The fans of the London band PDC fifth "Doomed", the seventh "Any Particular Interest" (where Michael MOORCOCK plays harmonica) or even the fourteenth "Quest For Bromley." Note that the tenth part "To Steal A Space Traveler," which is also one of the two longest of the album could be an unlikely collision between the two above-named courses. We'll leave the other titles in the appreciation of the audience. The fans of the London band PDC fifth "Doomed", the seventh "Any Particular Interest" (where Michael MOORCOCK plays harmonica) or even the fourteenth "Quest For Bromley." Note that the tenth part "To Steal A Space Traveler," which is also one of the two longest of the album could be an unlikely collision between the two above-named courses. We'll leave the other titles in the appreciation of the audience. The fans of the London band PDC fifth "Doomed", the seventh "Any Particular Interest" (where Michael MOORCOCK plays harmonica) or even the fourteenth "Quest For Bromley." Note that the tenth part "To Steal A Space Traveler," which is also one of the two longest of the album could be an unlikely collision between the two above-named courses. We'll leave the other titles in the appreciation of the audience. one of the longest of the album could be an unlikely collision between the two above-named courses. We'll leave the other titles in the appreciation of the audience. one of the longest of the album could be an unlikely collision between the two above-named courses. We'll leave the other titles in the appreciation of the audience.   
The second disc for a fan of instrumental music, then it's more sensitivity to my voice and unfortunately often misused, so my preference goes to the second CD that contains the same songs in the same order but in versions without words and where there are much less complete mess of the first cD (see above), in a nutshell, it is much more digestible. In summary an album to listen with very large ears to fully appreciate.
