Master Musicians of Bukkake – “Totem One” – [Conspiracy Records]

Rarus Avis   6/23/2009   A Library, CD

MMOB is a mixed group of folks from the Seattle area, and includes members of Sun City Girl (and Earth, Burning Witch and Diminished Men), and this music was released on Conspiracy Records label. Like their other disk, their music is filled with psychodelic hymns and ritualistic dances that move from spacious guitars to death chants, having narcotic effects on the listener. Yet, the music has many opposites where prog rock guitar riffs are followed by complex drumming, Eastern influenced strings, and chanting evoking, if one were prepared for it, psychotic transe events.

Instrumentation has amazing variety from guitars and drums, to Mellotron, gamelan, saz and tanpura (a terrific drone instrument).

Trks 1-3 can be played as one track.
