Album Review

Frozen Geese – “Disclaimer” – [Vanity Case]

Thurston Hunger   12/14/2011   12-inch, A Library

Dug the recent 3eese we were shipped, and then
happy to see this fly in through the KFJC mail slot.
Evidently 3eese, Geese and Frozen Geese are all
connected at the Lazonby-on-Bailey. Two live in
Leeds keybards and knob-goblins. Graham Bailey
on synth and effects, and David “Lazerboy” Lazonby
beaming hammond organ and other waves into
the prog-psych soup here. This one long piece,
split in vinyl half, starts in an imaginary subway
with a shemale robot public briefly announcing
departure, but the music then moves out into an
electronically dappled bush of ghosts. This Frozen
Geese config features five gents, and Stephen Goodwin
(whom I think is an erstwhile drummer) is key, anchoring
the freak-for-all here with deep rooted bass playing.
Simple, stalwart and a hint of spook Czukay. Plenty of
analog bubbles in this jammy outing. Felix Frey fuzzles
his guitar, percussion comes from Lazonby’s Boss DR55.
Normally I’m not chemically as susceptible to long jams
as my fellow KFJC DJ’s but, I found the shape-shifting
on part 1 very compelling. Nice for transferring from the
beat and ambient territories to rockier realms. The
Frozen Geese might flock together with a Mother Mallard even.
Falling from the sky
Frozen Geese pluck mushroom jam
From Uncle’s old synths
