Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2009-02-04 
Really good musicians playing imrpov noise. Spacey & psychedelic, rock parts with singing, samples, synth noodling, avant jams all in the mix. Tracks 1,4 most radio friendly length, 3 & 5 8-9 mins long. (When I was a freshman DJ, I remember seeing an old “multi-speed, multi-axis” extra spindle drill-hole 7” with Smegma on one side, was surprised 10 years later=10 years ago to be visiting Portland and seeing flyers for Smegma, and now realizing they’re still around. Jello’s intro states they’ve been playing since 1973!)

1. 1.5 min intro, Jello (no cursing), then multi-layered free noise with acoustic wind instruments and feedback elec guitars.
2. TV sounds in into, then loose but well-played psych/space rock jam. Nearly 17mins
3. even more out-there, synth tones, outer space transmissions from the 50s. Sorta pulls together
4. Has vocals. Fast. Set closing radio-friendly length piece.
5. Improv sounds with a cold feel
