Review: Cape Catastrophe (Percy Jones)

Cape Catastrophe (Percy Jones)
(2013, Gonzo Multimedia)
(2.6 / 6)

Percy Jones (born December 3, 1947 in Llandrindod Wells, Wales) is a bassist who will be forever known for his performance inBrand X , although he also played in Soft Machine , Rock Poetry Group and contributed to recordings with David Sylvian , Brian Eno , Steve Hackett ,Paranoise , Suzanne Vega , among others. Castrophe Cape is an innovative but very strange disc. Much more than a disc prog / fusion is a truly experimental record, the fields by entering the Krautrock , which experimentalism that overlaps, almost always, the format and concept song.There is a lot of work and technical and sonic exploration down, exploring new sonic territories, deconstructing the songs always at the expense of musicality or something approaching melody. All themes are by Jones except the last,Symphony In F Major , interestingly a band with something classic in itself. A disc advised explorers hereof.

...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.
