French Percy Jones review

The album '' Cape Catastrophe '' was decidedly his name and Percy Jones, former bassist of Brand X , did not convince the listeners due to its disjointed appearance. The Welshman has not stopped turning, however, and over the concerts he formed the hard core of a self-appointed project MJ12 (named Majestik 12, a group of scientists who worked on the issue of UFOs in the 40s). Is missed the trip alone might find meaning in this space cruise in number? The listener is embedded with "MJ12" for a full instrumental free jazz journey of fifty-one minutes. Enthusiasts will appreciate 'Call 911', a long jam free jazz dominated by the lower of the Welsh and the sprawling set of battery Stephen Moses but mostly crossed by a long saxophone solo, or 'Big Daddy's Road' on which the summary rhythm is even richer. But what sets album coming-everything lies in the flexibility of the group not to be locked into a genre. The theme behind the project name is not a coquetry and four men treat our own moods to science fiction. 'Magic Mist' is made ​​more worrying by his guitar jolts, saxophone and its hypnotic rhythm loop. 'The Phantom Maracas' juggles ethereal atmospheres and sweltering reflecting the strangeness of the title. On 'Bad American Dream', the agreement seems to be perfect, everyone listening to form the first part planing a long beach which suddenly picks up speed after the third minute. Finally, how can we forget the explosive 'Guns And Pussy' which plays tempos with rock energy. Free jazz lovers can rush to seize this new album, other curious who do not have to blinkers (essential attitude of any music lover who respects) will not turn away. Everyone will appreciate to hear the alchemy of four men in possession of all their means and whose mastery can be extra-terrestrial!

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.
