Album Review

Monkey Power Trio, The – “1995: The First Hour ” – [Pochahontas Swamp Machine]

Max Level   9/7/2008   7-inch, A Library

Where it all began. Three college chums convened in the basement of a Brooklyn apartment building for an hour of on-the-spot songwriting with no preparation, not much in the way of proficiency, and barely any instruments (a couple of wind instruments, a 5-string guitar, and basement junk percussion such as a space heater, gas cans, etc). A lo-fi cassette recorder captured the magic. I’m not too big on the comedy bit “You Like-a The Cheese?”, but I do like the beautiful and disturbing story of “Baby Eyes”, and the other songs have a raw no-wave blurt that sounds good to me.
