Gargamel

Revulva

Space Tree/Locked Groove

Combining the sophistication of Zappa and the uninhibited reverie of free-form jazz, plus liberally sampling from the myriad of musical genre currently infecting the airwaves, these Central Florida ne’er-do-wells have nailed their niche. A more hip band cannot be found around here today.

Ranging from mere clips of a few seconds duration to cuts exceeding six minutes, the 13 songs on this CD are arty, witty, insightful, and extremely smart-ass. In short, this is great stuff! The best cut by far is “Juan 40 Lawyers.” Get it? If not, you suck. Locked Groove Entertainment, PO Box 948301, Maitland FL 32794
