Weird Biscuit Teatime
A Don Falcone Production, with daevid allen et al. Click for big pic
daevid band recordings 'treated' by Don Falcone.
This is a very interesting album indeed - and yet again (why am I surprised after all these years?) something completely new. In most respects it sounds more like a new band recording a studio album than Don Falcone's earlier experimental albums which featured daevid. And a very good band it is too.
Well, what reference points in the ever expanding Gong Family Universe were conjured up for me? There are certainly shades of the University of Errors, not unexpected with daevid on full 'banana guitar' duties and Michael Clare on bass, but it is nowhere near as punky as the UofE often are. There is a darker grandeur about Weird Biscuit than most of the UofE work. It also has a more Brainville edge about it, but a rock-based Brainville. Undoubtedly both very good points on the huge Gong Family musical map to reference.
