CD REVIEW: Caliban - The Solar Powered Rock
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Caliban
Genre: Rock
CD Review:
I love the photos this guy takes. He deliberately frowns. Every damn time. No, it's not the ordinary 'let's not smile, let's look cool' lips of your average hard rock, big hair band. This guy FROWNS.

This is a promo cd for the movie The Mobius Group. I assume that's a Real movie, but anyway, the music is - different. 'The 70s Song' has a good beat and enough darkness within to keep Pink Floyd fans happy for a week, and lots of good guitar from various directions.

4 songs here on the cd. 'Dali' comes up 2nd, 'little dali, salvador dali... going to get himself some matches / and burn his painting down / I read it in the paper, I hear it on the news / the man with fourteen matches going to burn somebody down'. And 'Dr. Remington' begins with a crappy little dog barking. The instruments and playing I like a lot more than the lead/only voice. A bit like Frank Zappa singing his own stuff cause no one else will. I kid. The tunes themselves are toe-tapping. The subjects are yes, nicely Zappa flavored in lyrical content.

If any film is full of this stuff, I have to see it.
