A seminal experimental rock group—formed the basis of a lot of other sounds and bands.
Recommended first album:
1992—Soleilmoon Recordings—SOL 10 CD
Out of print but can still be found in used disc stores in the northwest U.S.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in experimental rock
Fred Chalenor—guitar, 5-string bass, kurzweil, vocals
The Tone Dogs and Drew Canulette
A mix of unusual sounds with straightahead rock. Highly effective, as the musicians are too in control to let it turn into wanking. It's always wailing the fine edge of melody, never entirely drifting into cacophany. Their song "(When Bush Was Head Of The) CIA" is brilliant, but you'll love their wild version of "Spanish Eyes", and "Mr. Awfully Nice" which breaks into The Beatles' "She Loves You", too. Inspired madness. (Neile)
