Reviewed 2016-08-31
Fresno based genius, one man band that sounds like the entire Zappa orchestra: prog infused mix of weird rock and fusion but with irreverent brilliant lyrics, social commentary on wide range of important topics, but all scathingly hilarious. The evils of Monsanto and our dysfunctional legal system are in the crosshairs but Viagra and the town of Los Banos also fall prey. Fresno plays something akin to the Chapman Stick, which enables him to emulate guitars, bass... you name it, and along with his masterful use of loopers he lays down a whole orchestra worth of music live (as he did in our studios about 10 years ago to much fanfare). And all his CDs come with a free bong tool (yeah sure its just a paper clip). Highly recommended, especially live if you get a chance.

1) (4:05) suburban holiday 4th of July bbq theme 2) (7:07) begins slow and even doomy but then launches into full on funky blues rock 70's w harmonica, about human obliviousness, mercury poisoning, an argument for incandescent lighting 3) (2:37) Zappa esque about annoying boom truck owned by the farmers mrkt bee guy 4)* (8:23) spoken word intro brutal indictment of and call to arms vs Monsanto 5) FCC (quick "bullshit") (6:48) strange proggy off kilter, another dark humorous twist on violence, license to kill cuz it's your bday 6) (6:41) penis enlargement/viagra theme, borderline lewd if it wasn't so funny, euphemisms galore 7) (6:06) FCCs 8) (3:35) FCCS lewd 9)* (6:35) a song about Los Banos! Polka feel, awesome! 10) (7:47) full on fusion prog, with stylin keys, on par with anything Weather Report, rare instrumental that smokes!
