Greg Koch

Radio Free Gristle
Greg Koch

Hey man! Did you know that Doctor Demento’s fucking guitar-playing twin
made an album? That fucking funny guitar-playing twin is named Greg Koch. His
little intros in between songs are worth the price of Radio Free Gristle-they
are some funny shit. Radio Free Gristle is a throwback to the days when radio
was cool and fun to listen to. You know what I mean, back in the day when turning
on the am/fm was worth a damn? Koch created the kind of airplay he wants rather
than waiting for some corporate machine to put it into some canned, pre-programmed
radio piece of shit rotation. That makes Mr. Koch an original.

Those funny little bits between songs showcase a wicked guitar player. You
have to love the way Koch abuses that fucking guitar. He makes it howl, cry,
holler, whimper, and scream. Today’s metal players would do themselves
a favor by listening to Radio Free Gristle. He can beat it up easily with the
likes of Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoades. Koch is a guitar players guitar
player. The cd had some great fucking playing on it. It is one hell of a ride.

RA

RA Rises Over Earthlink Live in Atlanta

The Earthlink Live venue is totally amazing. Any band that hits Atlanta should
play Earthlink Live. It is a small and classy venue. My quest at Earthlink Live
was to find RA because my cat, who is also named Ra, loves their music. Heather,
from 99X, assisted me in my quest to find the RA. We met a guitar tech from
RA named Andy. Andy told lead singer Sahaj that MusicIncider wanted

Banned from Utopia

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.

Opeth

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

Must

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

Opeth

The Second Coming of Opeth
Damnation

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.

Peter Huttlinger

Did you ever see that movie Final Destination? Every time death was coming a
John Denver song would play. I got spooked over fucking Rocky Mountain High
for months. I would look up every time I heard the name John Denver. Don’t
get me wrong-I am sorry the man crashed his airplane. But what the fuck man!
I don’t fly because fucking airplanes crash and famous people die. Let’s
take Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Patsy Cline, and the Big
Bopper as examples. Patrick Swayze tried to crash himself to death in a plane,
but he never cut a record did he? He dances, but that is as far as his involvement
with music goes. I, for one, have too much shit to do so crashing in a plane
is out of the fucking question.

Systematic

PLEASURE TO BURN lets you imagine burning away that pain and starting over fresh. Fuck with SYSTEMATIC, and you will be a PLEASURE TO BURN. Tim Narducci delivers strong, clear vocals with a motherfucking fist in the air. His cd performance shows the strong influence of Metallica’s James Hetfield on the band. If you love Metallica, you will love Systematic.

Jeff Pilson

I got the chance to speak with Jeff Pilson (formerly of Dokken) recently. I
found him to be perfect for MusicIncider. He is not afraid to speak the truth
as he sees it.
