ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What would it sound like...if Frank Zappa hired David Byrne and half of XTC to play songs by the Commodores that were arranged by Robert Fripp?

Well...
Drummer, songwriter, skeptic, philosopher, and high carb proponent, George Hrab has released his 4th and bestest album yet entitled COELACANTH. Building upon years of playing and working with some of the most talented musicians on the east coast, George has handcrafted an amazingly fun and funky album full of tunes that make you smile, dance, and dare we even say it... THINK.

Combining the soul sounds of Motown, the greasy grooves and brass of 70s horn bands, and the nerd-rock/white funk of the Byrnian 80s, Hrab oversees his entire monstrous creation with a decidedly Zappa-esque skewed view. Insisting that the way to someone's brain is through their dance shoes, COELACANTH prides itself as truly being a collection of philosofunky biolojams for the skeptical zoologist's dance party.

Just Plain FANTASTIC!!
The only problem with this CD is it's too short. I could listen to this stuff for hours. The versions of B3 and Simple Simian on this are much more up-beat and fun than Vitriol.
I see you there wondering, buy this CD, you won't be disappointed.

Richard Klatt

Fun and Inspirational
The message in this CD is an important one but is presented in a truly entertaining way. "Think For Yourself" is my new personal anthem.

More fun than a barrel of GoldenPalace.com monkeys!
This is my favourite CD I have heard in a long time, every track is absolutely excellent! Geo's previous albums have been extremely good as well, but with the backing of the Philadelphia Funk Authority, his music goes to heights previously unheard of.

suddenly, funky!
this album has suddenly made it into my list of top ten albums - fantastic stuff. Now all I have to do is find a B cubed lady friend to listen to it with.

Marvin Long

Conveniently Cosmic
I've had this for something like a year...and I'm still listening to it. Somebody once said "Free your ass and your mind will follow" - Mr. Hrab proves the principle works in both directions. (And 'Convenient' is the ultimate holiday song.)

Score!
two words...awe some

Why Does My Wife Want To Leave Me For George Hrab?
I heard Geo's interview on Skepticality a few months back - and immediately instructed my wife to go forth and purchase his work! Coelecanth was backordered at the time, but I have it now. Where to start on this CD? The lyrics are excellent, the music is excellent, and the drumming....wow.

Topping it all off, Geo was inspired by "A Fish Out of Time", which is one of my favorite books. Hell, I like Coelecanths. I have a pewter one on my keychain (results in a lot of strange looks). I read books about it in gradeschool Now I can hear a Coelecanth Sigh - which is one of my favorite tracks on the album.

What else can I say? Geo is the kind of guy I'd like to sit down and bullshit with - he's astonishing like me. Except for the musical talent, his lyrical skills, and (per my wife) his rugged good looks. Other than that we might as well be clones.....

Great listen
This is a great CD... Assuming that you like different musical styles and aren't put off by the skeptical approach.

First track is my new favorate song!!!
I heard BrainsBodyBoth off George Hrab's Coelacanth CD on a podcast (can't remember which one, probably Accident Hash and/or Pacific Coast Hellway) and said that I've got to have that song. Since ordering my CD from CD Baby, I've heard it on several other podcasts including again on Accident Hash.

George, ROCK-ON!!!

Lance Miller

Jamming, funny, and intelligent - check this one out!
Do you see all the 5-star reviews? Maybe that should tell you something... I saw Geo and his excellent band live, then went after the CD's.

This is some most excellent party music, and Geo delivers over the headphones as well. Sit down in a comfy chair, throw in the CD, and read along with the lyrics and liner notes. Very witty, and many times hilarious stuff. Check out the sample music - You'll love it.
