Description

Get Your Greasy Head Off the Sham on CD

According to Paul Lemos, an original member of the NY-based experimental/industrial group Controlled Bleeding, his new Breast Fed Yak "have completely put aside all electronics on these new recordings [and have gone] back to something much more primal. " Indeed: imagine a naked, 350-pound superhero scatting like Ella Fitzgerald having an epileptic fit (longtime Controlled Bleeding collaborator Joe Papa) backed by a band of Plutonians (Lemos and Yoshida Tatsuya of Ruins) who challenge their instruments to defy the electricity coming out of their 50,000 fingertips. With influences that include Ennio Morricone, Albert Ayler, Captain Beefheart, Sun Ra, and spy movie themes, Get Your Greasy Head Off the Sham mocks classification that terms such as "soul-pain," "dis-funk," and "Sunset Stripped R&B spasmcore" try to capture. With guest appearances by Hakan Almkvist (of Ensemble Nimbus fame) on sitar and the Holy Trinity High School Detention Choir, this music on this album, according to Birdman, will kill you, although not without saving you the last dance at your funeral.
