Sack Trick - (Music From) The Mystery Rabbits
What a great album. The man Sean at the Org does it again. This is just pure fun. Juvenile, yeah, sometimes. Fun, yeah, pretty much all the time. Angst ridden. Nope. Something to put a grin on your face. Yep.
Check out some of the titles. I Play Bass. The Turd That Wouldnt Flush. No Tomatoes For Me Thanks, Maths Teachers Words of Wisdom, Hiring Camels, Blue Ice Cream.
This album is a throwback in many ways to the early nineties. The era when the Faith No More ruled the planet. Some people hate the dreaded term, Funk Metal. Well, the funk is here. Metal? You decide. But its a sense of fun. Its not tuned down until its just a rumble. Its lively, fun. Music as enjoyment. What a novel concept.
Its also a bit of a collective this one, featuring as it does, the remnants I believe of what was Bruce Dickinsons Skunkworks, Pete Friesen ex-Almighty, some blokey from Rachel Stamp, and an assorted collection of other people.
If youre looking to take a break from your collective angst, and it really is advisable to, even I do sometimes, then check out this album. Approach with an open mind, open arms, and a sense of fun.
And then enjoy. I suspect a spliff might go down nicely with this as well, but as I dont smoke them meself, Im not in a position to make a real comment there.
Personally well I have to pick out I Play Bass as the track on the album. Cos it kinda sums up my musically ability. Well, apart from not actually being able to play the bass either.
I cant get a job cos I cant get out of bed,
I cant go to college, cos Ive nothing in my head,
I cant play drums and I cant really sing
Ive tried to play guitar, but its got farr too many strings,
I play bass.
Inspirational. Well, at least it is for me. At least I know theres others out there with the same musical inabilities as me. Ok, so theyre actually recording a fucking good album, but still, its the thought that counts.
Now, lets see if I can get in touch and sort out some kind of interview. Cos it probably aint going to be sensible.
Actually, you can try the same address I will, thats
Sack Trick, PO Box 16432, London W6 0ZQ.
