ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
EENOR BIO
Eenor is a new fangled multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and intriguing performer. He has been shaking up the San Francisco underground since the early 90's. He's enjoyed many musical ventures from touring Europe with Plainfield (an infamous S.F. punk band), to studying at the feet of Indian Sarod master Ali Akbar Khan in San Rafael.

From 2000-2003- Eenor performed with The Les Claypool Frog Brigade. He performed on all three of the releases; Live Frogs Set's 1 and 2 (a remake of Pink Floyd's "Animals"), and The Purple Onion, the bands studio album. He is also featured on the Bonaroo 2001 DVD with the Frogs. During his tenure with the Frogs, he had the opportunity to perform with luminaries such as Adrian Belew, Stuart Copeland, Ike Willis (Frank Zappa), Trey Anestasio, Mike Gordon, Mike Watt, Buckethead, Jerry Cantrell, Eric McFadden, M.I.R.V., and more... Some tremendous music was made and Eenor consistently wowed the Frog audiences with his original flavor and style.

Eenor's new CD "Monkey to Monkey" was recently released (April 1st 2004) and is currently being sent out for reviews. Featuring a cast of mad musicians from the Bay Area, Eenor will soon tour the US. The sound is stripped down, experimental, and raw. It features blazing guitar work, powerful vocals, and intelligent songs. The band, which is essentially members of Breakfast, is a three piece unit that combines elements of electronic music such as break beat, dub, drum n bass, and heavy rock. Until recently this has been mostly an improv crew, but they are now performing Eenor's solo material. It features Tommy Cappel on drums (Extra Action Marching Band, Yard Dogs Road Show, Marc Growden) and Bryan Dean on Bass (Roux, Joyo Velarde of Blackolicious (Quannum)).

Eenor, once the tall, imposingly cool six-string stroker for Colonel Les Claypoo
Eenor: Monkey To Monkey Fire up the water pipe and shake your mane! Eenor, once the tall, imposingly cool six-string stroker for Colonel Les Claypool's Frog Brigade, brings us a bent metal heart and who are we to refuse such a hard, lovely thing? One has to go back to Guns 'n' Roses' heyday to find this type of groove, rock that reminds us we have hips as we strut over to turn the stereo up. Pleasant tangents from the air guitar-inspiring rush include a credible Ozzy worthy ballad ("It's Even"), middle-eastern stomp ("Swimming Sans Dread"), a pretty dénouement, and a title track that flirts with Giorgio Moroder I-Love-To-Love-You-Baby dance drone. A tad schizophrenic perhaps but that's true of many debuts anxious to parade their plumage. A few friends pitch in on rhythm (notably Tommy Cappell's premium battered percussion on a half dozen cuts) and violin but the majority of the playing is the man himself, which is pretty impressive, especially when combined with his odd lyrical bent, incisive solos on both guitar and banjo (yes, banjo... a perfectly suitable vehicle for the fret minded), and an ear for compelling arrangements. There's a smattering of cartoon falsetto and bare-chested emoting but that's to be expected when one is rocking along a primate go-cart trip past giant hairy monsters to a cave where you're served strawberry jam and butter. Yum. *** Dennis Cook, Jambase

Eenor has got the goods - the real deal.
Eenor and his musical co-conspirators produce a wonderfully eclectic sound; sometimes dark, sometimes surreal, sometimes funny - always cool. It's at times very hard edged, always uncompromising and at times recalls the late great Snakefinger in it's overall appeal. But Eenor stands on his own as a creative force and virtuoso guitarist. This is underground rock at its very best and deserves a place above ground. Great playing, songwriting, and delivery.

An interesting mishmash...and I mean that in a good way!
Monkey to Monkey is an interesting album with a broad range of feel and atmosphere. Some songs make me think of chilling out on a patio, whereas other songs remind me of something you'd hear in a smokey pub during live mic night. Though there may be a wide range of feel to this album, I find that Eenor keeps everything effortless and smooth throughout. There is none of that "forcing it" feel that certain compositions have. His vocals match the style of each song perfectly and the instrumentals are neither overly complicated, nor too simple. If you're a listener who puts on a CD just to stay in one groove, don't pick this one! However, if you're up for some "listener challenge" pick this album up. It's a fun laid back album that is neither too hard, too soft, but just right!
