OLD TIME RELIJUN - Varieties of Religious Experience ( K records)
Arrington de Dionyso is the leader of the Old Time Relijun & apparently the name of the band has changed to feature his name, but in my book they are still the same olÍ Old Time Relijunâ OTR hail from Anacortes Washington and are one of the many modern answers to Captain Beefheart. Aggressive jangly fretless guitar and crazy drum rythms provided by Phil Elvrum from the Microphones.There are multiple versions of songs and the album gets stranger towards the end. Spastic Low-fi Art Rock in the fullest, and this art wierdo loves every dripping chord! PLAY! PLAY! - tHE bAWD oF euphony

1* Straight beat. Dissonant riff, Beefheart rantingâ the end of the world is hereâ
2** Fast Groove led by Upright bass, jangly guitars & hip drums. Scruffy voxâ DOPE!
3* Talking for 30 secs.. tuning, then song startsâ Ugly riff, cool-ass drum beat, scruffy
vox..Breakdown in middle into second half.. disco beat and beefheart rantingâ
4** Slow groove with high pitch vibrato siren singingâ Think Mick Jagger on XTCâ
5** Dirty Riff into phat drop grooveâ breakdown voxâ Upright bass seals the deal!
6- Drum machine like beat, alt version on track 4. Queeesyâ
7* Alt version of track 3.. Noisy Saxaphoneâ jangly guitarsâquick tempo.. rad!
8** Cool drum sounds and toy pianos.. weirdo stomp!!! Swelling bass, growling voxâ
9** Upright grooveâ drop beatâ could be a hip-hop songâ heavy groovinÍ! Noisy sax solo at
endâ dope!
10* Alt verson of track 9. Noisy sax, swelling bassâ HeÍs a purple pirate! Awesome
11** Punkish, guitar and vox intro into full-on grooveâ GREAT!
12- Alt version of track 11â more lo-fiâ Just Vox & Guitar
13- I dunno what this is.. sounds like vomitous monkies mateingâ Coolâ I think
14* Happyland!!!â Blonde on Nitrousâ (im reverting to metaphorsâ)
15* Spaz groove Game show theme gone horribly wrongâ crazyâ
16- What the fuckâ? BILL should play this, at the end of his show when heÍs really drunkâ
17- Vox spaz and sax spaz duel! Who will win? The saxâ
18- Bass and grooving drum duo
19** INSANELY Robotoc guitar sounds and crazy drumsâ Devo on Angel Dust!
20- Free jazz with a stomach acheâ I dunno whether to like it or take a shit..?
21- Honky honking free jazz rolly rolls
22- Acordian? Heart felt? A constipated Weenâ
