Blue Pine – “Blue Pine ” – [Global Symphonic]

A posthumous release from British Columbia’s
BLUE PINE on Vancouver label of whacked
genius (ATLAS STRATEGIC, HACKSAW,
A LUNA RED, etc.). Roughing up a bevy of
roots-sources with the rumbling, indecipherable
Carey Mercer falling apart on lead vocals, and
featuring Carolyn Mark on a couple of tracks,
the band meanwhile contributes an impenetrable
backdrop of tremolo, slide guitars & much
snare-smashing amid the carnival-fed horror of
lyrical dementia. Frenetic, howling, non-sensical
and strangely beautiful in tearful, bloody portions,
BLUE PINE call to mind a vein that would have
to include THE RESIDENTS, JERK WITH A
BOMB, SOUL JUNK, etc., snarling with bizarre
juxtapositional culture-clubbing, bible-bashing &
raging melancholy. Some of BLUE PINE have
formed a band called FROG EYES.
