Scenes from the Good Life
'These startlingly unhinged, funhouse wizards have created a beautifully packaged, 2-CD set entitled 'Scenes from the Good Life' that well may be the most amazing local recording EVER. The core quintet can play anything, and the performances are brilliantly recorded. The astonishing Otar Taktakishvili (guitars, vocals and studio) shares writing/siging credits with Ty Byerly and Brian Cretzmeyer, and the groups collective ethos boggles the imagination with a mix of Bonzo Dog Band, Zappa, Celitic folk, Holy Modal Rounders, vaudevillian Kinks, the Dead, and disconnected 'White Album' Beatles and hill-coutry granola. The GgLITCH are awesome and deserve yer love.' --Jim Musser of the Daily Iowan.
