- hectic watermelon: the great american road trip
(2006, cd, usa, predator fish records)
Today, the search for zappa-esque music brings us Hectic Watermelon.
Hectic Watermelon is John Czajkowski's band and it's described as "a Post-Zappa, commando-fusion band from San Diego/Los Angeles ... ".
On "The Great American Road Trip", the Hectic Watermelon power trio (John Czajkowski - guitar ** Darren Debree - drums ** Harley Magsino - bass) is joined by electric violin legend Jerry Goodman.
It's jazz. It's fusion. It's progressive rock. And it's indeed very zappa-esque compositionwise.
A great discovery.
