Procosmian Fannyfiddlers — Father Dog
(Langt Lem LLR666-17F , 2005, CD)
by Cesar Montesano, Published 2006-05-01
Superb synthesis, amazing amalgam, and cheeky chiding are the tools of their flowing trade. Within a context of variegated progressive rock, Procosmian Fannyfiddlers are a bastion of wide-reaching skill. Beating down the aisles of several different classic styles and unabashedly brandishing influences on their sleeves, shining snatches of passages become protracted patches embroidering armor around docked harbors. Canterbury, folk-progressive, krautrock, rock in opposition, art-rock, fusion, and a slight symphonic flair all make entrance. Each element implanted with the care of a team of accomplished surgeons. A great deal of counterpoint, sequential timing, and melodic development is evident in each orbit, racing around and dancing pivotal circles about themselves in a carnival of sound. High energy abounds from start to finish. The lyrics are preposterous and indubitably hilarious, it is improbable to sing along without bursting a belly-laughing gasket. Beware if ye hath tender sensibilities for their subject matter and content would make latter day Zappa fans very proud. Tongues burrow deeply into unabashed tomfoolery. A Norwegian treat sung in perfect English with a versatile, literal, and humorous command of the language. Taking the mixture further is the depth of intrinsic referencing happening on several levels. Only time and the, completely fulfilling, requisite replays can delimit how much one can decipher. Clever parodies abound, all the way down to the titles of the songs. Everything is intentional, exceptional, professional, and keenly executed. Spunky and fresh.
