- fast 'n bulbous: waxed oop
(2009, cd, usa, cuneiform)
"Waxed Oop" is the second release by Philip Johnston and Gary Lucas' Fast 'n Bulbous Captain Beefheart Project.
Take a national steel guitar, a bass, a drum set, a trumpet, an alto saxophone, a trombone, a baritone saxophone, and you've got the instrumentation for Fast 'n Bulbous!
For me, one of the most spectacular things about the music of Captain Beefheart, is the rhythm. At its best, it sounds like a train rolling by.
And that's exactly what Fast 'n Bulous is so good at. These horns make the music roll like a train.
Add fine guitar work by former Beefheart bandmember Gary Lucas, and you get a superb album.
