Clark-Hutchinson-A=MH2

Yikes, this guitar is lethal. How can an album contain such incendiary shredding, and yet be so mellow? Seems improbable, but these guys hit on the right formula. You get hand drum propelled (almost afro-beat) jams, flamenco improvs, mellow guitar meditations, and a bunch of other weird shit. You know that episode of the Mighty Boosh when they are looking for "the new sound?" That's what this sounds like. There must have been a book of acid ingested when this was recorded. I refuse to believe otherwise. Grade A psych goodness if I've ever heard it.

  7. Nice one. I'd only ever hear 'free to be stoned' from a later lp. Thank you!

  8. Viles,

    Really appreciate the offer, but I was just teasing. And I no longer live in Chicago. It's West Virginia for now, but who know where I'll be in a couple of months.

  9. Holly, that's a classic track. But this is the album I go to when I want some C & H.

  11. Yeah, but hopefully I'll change career paths here in a few months and be able to move away. Seems unlikely at this point though.
