So Yuh Don’t Like Modern Art is a brilliant and fun debut cd from a cast
of characters known as Banned From Utopia. The size of BFU reminds me of the
big bands from the forties. You know, during the time when music was not programmed
into a fucking keyboard. Banned From Utopia was formed as a tribute to Frank
Zappa. Guys, wherever Frank may be, I am sure that Dancin’ Fool is proud.
There are no holds barred on this cd. Listen carefully and you can hear hard
rock, jazz, country, and classical. BFU does not want to bore the listener.
It is funny and musically complex. This cd has six of Frank Zappa’s original
instrumental songs. “Tink Walks Amok/Thirteen” is a combination
of two Zappa tunes.
Deliverance From the Stockholm Syndrome
Mikael Akerfeldt has a voice that reminds me of Frankenstein singing fucking
Danzig. The listener can hear the mad, insane edge in his voice. He creeps into
your soul and rips you apart. This is one guy not to listen to stoned. You will
have nightmares. Can you imagine the nightmare? Mikael dressed up as Frankenstein?
Peter Lindgren reminds me of the great, late Randy Rhoades, of Ozzy Osbourne
fame. He is powerful metal god guitarist to be. Martin Lopez, to me, is like
John Densmore. He is a fucking rock poet on drums. Martin Mendez’s bass
playing is like the battle for heaven in Milton’s Paradise Lost
If you threw Steven Tyler’s voice and Bono’s voice into a blender-you
would have Dave Ireland’s voice. Dave is the perfect Australian margarita.
Dave blends his voice with Reuben Alexander and Kaiser to turn out the finest
that Don Julio has to offer. These three guys have a huge and sensual musical
sound. Who the fuck needs a live drummer to hold it together? Kaiser’s
bass holds it together. Must is a modern day Buddy Holly with a kick in the
ass update. Buddy Holly would be doing the music Must is putting out if he was
born in this day and age. I see why Tyler And Company picked them for the Atlanta
show. They kick ass. They would be a great appetizer for a Danzig show. The
American band, Cursive, would be a great opening act for them. They would complement
each other perfectly

The Second Coming of Opeth
Damnation is the answer to Opeth’s Deliverance. The fury and edge of
Deliverance is gone. Damnation is poetry for a soul riddled with grief and pain.
Akerfeldt has an incredible fucking range with his vocals. Frankenstein sings
from his own wounded soul while holding the shattered pieces of his heat in
his hands like a jigsaw puzzle. He wonders how to put the broken puzzle back
together again. Peter Lindgren shows us that he is growing into his own style
of guitar playing on this album-he still keeps a little Randy Rhoades in the
background. Martin Lopez is the ultimate death march drummer as always. Lopez
is Frankenstein’s beating heart. Martin Mendez’s bass playing is
the blood pulsing through Frankenstein’s veins into his brain.
