RighteousBadman Reviews: Intergalactic Death Potato

INTERGALACTIC DEATH POTATO




You could be fooled into thinking this is merely a collection of bizarre sounds and noises. That would be the point where I would have to throw rocks at you, until the point you squealed like my harlot Iranian ex-wife. Anyway, the album comes fresh from the mind of self-proclaimed musical genius, Tom Langton. The concept for the album came from the lack of anything at all resembling music, commonly found in the music of F.E.M.I (presumed to stand for Failed Effort to Musically Inspire). Langton plays on this concept with many of the tracks featuring what I can only describe as the noises a potato might make whilst quite severely constipated.

What if music was really to be so ingenious that it did not resemble music itself?


This is Langton's niche. Tracks on the album shock the listener with the sheer concentration of abstact madness, such as the instrumental lunacy heard in Pneumatic Watermelon Slicer I & II. Both parts do an effective job of portraying the abstract feelings this album represents. The opening track is a distorted monologue read aloud, with a voice reminiscent of Christian Bale's performance in the dark night. It varies from vaguely understandable to the incomprehensible gibberish, akin to that of a greviously mutilated tragedy of men's proffessional boxing.

I Need A Cheese Sandwich (Really Really Badly) appears to bear more in common with what one might recognise as music. The lyrics flow in a gentle pattern, punctuated with feral growling and accompanied by the disconnected plucks of a eukalalie. The title track (Intergalactic Death Potato) takes on a futuristic feel yet maintains a certain primal rage, strongly emphasised by the bongo's and powerful spiritual chant. The chanting builds and builds until the listener is fullly immersed into what feels like a jungle on a far-away planet, populated solely by three-legged jugglers who seek only to devour your still beating pancreas so that they may battle with their life-threatening type two Diabetes and finally defeat the evil King Insulinus so that they may once again live in harmony free from the troubles of being unable to control their blood sugars.

The finale, A Moment Of Silence(Inbetween Me Hitting Glasses(And Shouting))), leaves the listener reeling for more with its powerful opening melody followed by a rhythmic vocal accompaniment before descending into dystopian roars and fading to near-silence. Only to be re-awakened by a series of loud rumbling noise. All of a sudden, the jungle is around you once again. The familiar gleeful chiming can still be heard intermittently as yet more growling provokes the reader to fear and cherish this otherworldly experience.

In summary, this album can only lead to the conclusion that somewhere, far into outer space, a tribe of feral cannabalistic potato people are preparing to strike.

Five out of five L.Jacksons
