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 Relijunƒ 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
