Album: Frank Genius is Star Struck
Author: John Gore
Publication: Chain D.L.K.
Another collection of cultural detritus and pilfering assembled around a dance beat. One wonders if there's anything original to the artist in this kind of musical expression. Of course he is the assembler, but could he actually come up with an original melody or beat without the digital machinery? Or perhaps there's no point asking that question. I'm wondering why the copyright lawyers aren't all over this guy. Fourteen tracks ranging from :04 to 4:09 all melting into each other for the ultimate DJ experience. His take on fascism (or is it just a pompous operatic sample) and Heavy Metal on track #12 "Ascending Megablast" is pretty funny though, and maybe not as ironic as that sounds.
