REVIEW
by teejo

to round off their captain beefheart tribute, the FAST 'N' BULBOUS musicians went to a recording studio to play stuff from the live performances for an album (including an instrumental they don't seem to have done before: 'dali's car'). as the concept for the project hadn't changed, the PORK CHOP BLUE AROUND THE RIND ceedee has no influence on my opinion that it is good (jazz) music, but little beefheart.

i fear this disc is only interesting to friends and family of the players, who can get the record directly from cuneiform for ten us dollars (plus shipping) or listen to a real audio version of it.

REVIEW
by teejo

after the release of the beefheart tribute 'pork chop etc.' the FAST 'N' BULBOUS musicians regularly played more shows, eventually resulting in a second ceedee four years later. as the concept for the project (with the exception of two versions with vocals) hadn't changed, the WAXED OOP follow-up has no influence on my opinion that it is good (jazz) music, but little beefheart.

i fear this disc is only interesting to friends and family of the players, who can get the record directly from cuneiform for ten us dollars (plus shipping) or listen to a real audio version of it.
