Album Notes
Harmonious Junk\'s sound is an ever evolving amalgamation of musical styles and influences. Blending the knowledge gained backing R&B/Soul star, Funk innovater, and Legendary band leader James Brown (HJ founder Damon Wood played lead guitar with the Godfather of Soul for 8 years becoming a regularly featured soloist in virtually every live James Brown show from 1999-2006) with the Grateful Dead and Fusion Jazz schools of Improvisation, the Frank Zappa & Spinal Tap schools of Comedy Rock, and always keeping an open ear and mind to new sounds and possibilities make this group a unique, powerful and unpredictable musical presence. With styles ranging from Blues to Jazz, Funk to Psychedelic Rock and Down Home to Humorous, Harmonious Junk creates a spontaneous tapestry of imagery and sound that is at once fun, irreverent, maniacal, inspirational, and most importantly, it makes you wanna get down and boogie!! The cd also features Fred Thomas bassist and vocalist with James Brown & the JB\'s.

Marquee Magazine May 2009
Harmonious Junk "Too Cocky In Nagasaki" 4 out of 5 stars.

Harmonious Junk is for all intents and purposes a feel-good band — mixing a friendly humor reminiscent of Zappa with the funk of James Brown. And, simply put, former James Brown guitarist and Harmonious junk leader, Damon Wood knows how to kick it.

Taking you on a trip through the musical ethers, Too Cocky in Nagasaki showcases the band’s studio efforts with a fierce command and a refreshingly loose feel at the same time. It shows not only a reminiscent introspection (“My Friend and Me”) but a jokingly relaxed attitude (“Hippy Girl”).

The band juxtaposes the best talent any jam/funk band has to offer with the chilled out point of view of a seasoned and experienced group proving that no subject is off limits. The music is mostly illustrative of a summer barbecue with good beer, good smoke and pretty girls dancing all around the place.

Featuring legendary bassist and vocalist from the Brown days, Fred Thomas, the album expresses its talent in a smooth yet funky, at times jazzy, journey through genres. Harmonious Junk landed “Best Jamband” by Westword in 2005 and the band lives up to its reputation by providing the funkiest, grooviest, and headiest rhythms and musical expositions to the Front Range.

This is the epitome of music to “get down” to.
