Description

Flat Earth Society - Psychoscout

Delirious yet sophisticated, lush yet furious, sarcastic yet sentimental, Flat Earth Society are one of the most exciting big bands around. After their "FES-isms" collection, compiled by Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantomas) and released in 2004 on his Ipecac label, here comes "Psychoscout", their first release on Crammed. FES is the brainchild of mercurial Belgian composer & clarinet player Peter Vermeersch, and consists of about 14 top-class turbulent and skilled musicians. What is this insane music ? Rock, classical avant-garde, cha-cha, punk jazz or cartoon soundtracks ? Or a bit of all of these ?

Reviews

"An unruly confluence of 'Merrie Melodies', Henry Mancini's cosmopolitan swank, and Sun Ra's cosmic slop-- all performed with the whiplash attention span of John Zorn's Naked City. They draw as much inspiration from Stravinsky or Bartok (not to mention art-rockers like Zappa or Beefheart) as they do from the blues or other more traditional American sources." (Pitchfork)
