Product Notes

Vitamin W\'s \'Cybercreep\' is cut from the same excellent cloth that defined the 1980\'s incarnation of King Crimson (Fripp, Bruford, Belew, Levin). -- J. Eric Smith, professional rock critic \'Cybercreep\' is my fave.... I love them all, of course, but really, \'Cybercreep\' and \'Trashed Audi,\' they\'re the ones I\'m liking these days (sure do love it when the noise kicks in on \'Cybercreep\' at 2:39, at any rate)... -- Vitamin W \'Cybercreep\' is a particularly brilliant bit of aural collage, really forming a great centerpiece to The Love Drug. -- J. Eric Smith, ultimately medically evicted from military service Kind of a sad song, \'Cybercreep,\' ain\'t it?? \'the lonesome foghorn blows,\' or \'the lonesome concentration camp siren sounds\'... I was delighted that somebody5 thought there was a police car after her at some point when she was listening [hey, it happened to me, too, the first few thousand times I listened to it.... -- Vitamin W It\'s great stuff. We all know it, so should they. -- J. Eric Smith, noted accurate cultural barometer Now that I\'m listening on something other than computer speakers, I can tell it\'s simply NOT RIGHT to mix it the way I did, with as much dynamic range as i did, cause people will f***ing kill themselves and/or blow out their speakers and/or wonder why everything stopped totally dead during the quiet bits... But, uh, I really think this may be quite listenable \'music\', right up the alley of, uh, somebody... Guess it\'d be kinda ridiculous if I hated it, so, uh, I should just shut up... -- Vitamin W A healthy respect for historical sources, coupled with a contemporary appreciation for the wonders of technological manipulation and reinterpretation. -- J. Eric Smith, spent four years as a midshipman and a drunk before serving as a real Naval officer for six, count \'em, six additional years These challenging debut recordings introduce the singular demented genius of Vitamin W, an ardent Burroughs-flavored cultural provocateur whose relentless pursuit of iconoclastic instrumental assault and disturbing aural imagery falls well to the favorable side of the genius threshold. What separates these cuts from others of their ilk is W\'s healthy respect for historical sources, coupled with a sincere appreciation for the wonders (and possibilities) of modern-day technological manipulation and reinterpretation. The Beastie Boys should be so lucky. Not to mention talented. -- JES (for the price of a wizard flag) Quite a nifty little package waiting in my mailbox tonight... The second CD I\'ve been thanked on in two years. I found it to be a challenging debut recording that introduces the singular demented genius of (Vitamin) W, who could be described as an ardent Burroughs-flavored cultural provocateur whose relentless pursuit of iconoclastic instrumental assault and disturbing aural imagery falls well to the favorable side of the genius threshold. I might add that what separates these cuts from others of their ilk is W\'s healthy respect for historical sources, coupled with a sincere appreciation for the wonders (and possibilities) of modern-day technological manipulation and reinterpretation. Genesis should be so lucky. Not to mention talented. *****! -- Evan \'Funk\' Davies, webmaster to the stars [really] Also, Vitamin W skips that Ween-but-not-quite-as-good phase completely, don\'t forget that!! And I gotta reiterate the joy of compiling a \'special thanks\' list, particularly when you haven\'t actually done anything... once again, highly recommended! -- Vitamin W A self-released recording from a Memphis/Austin based artist that was named on at least one Pazz & Jop ballot -- Evan \'Funk\' Davies, can effectively lead large and small inter-disciplinary teams, including managing information flow and problem solving across organizations.
