Glide Review - Fatback Circus - Fatback Circus

Well hello there!!!!  I got a new review up on Glide.

Read it right c'here!!!!

It is of the Austin group Fatback Circus new self titled release. 

The group seems to straddle genre's very easily but not really settle into one for very long.  This could be a good or bad thing, depending on how it's played out.  Some tunes really cooked, others seemed jumbled.  Flashes of Zappa, Raq, Primus, a bunch of alt-country slid in to the proceedings, so most people will probably dig a song or two, but might have a hard time sinking their teeth into the full album.  Humorless Ween is what I keep coming back too... 

Unlike my recent Creeping Weed review which reminded of other bands slightly, Fatback Circus seem to take a more heavy handed approach to their influences. 

Enough of my talk err...typing though, listen to some songs yourself and decide:

"Dust Bowl Blues" obviously a whole lotta Claypool love happening and I can't fault that:

 An older song not on this album, "Jessica"

Another older tune "Brain Damage"
