Mokele Mbembe – “Mokele Mbembe” – [Cut Hands]

Previously only known to cryptozoologists, it was said that a
pygmy tribe in Africa captured, killed and consumed a Mokele
Mbele, afterwhich those who had done so, perished. Thus we
recommend merely listening to this release at a safe distance,
at least until we can insure its effect remains as pleasant as
its first impression. These Mokele Mbele tracks were found in
the neighborhoods of Oakland California, signs of cables
dragged through dirt indicate muliple electric guitars as a
staple, evidence of struggle denotes percussion, likely one
drummer…unsure how many arms at this time. Keyboards
apparently are used to try and trap the unwitting fusion
afficiando. It is possible that the Mokele Mbele has
swallowed Japanese exchange students whole, wearing Acid
Mothers Temple’s t-shirts, and at night…nocturnal input
solicits a space rock reaction as seen on “Dad Rock.” At
the end, the scent of “Werewolves” is confusing, a whiff
of MOR scat dissipates into more fight-and-flight jam into
a tight pitch. If it is a dinosaur relative, it has some
chameleon DNA to it. The first track rules by the way…
