Houston Music Review

The freedom that comes with doing music for yourself
Organ Failure - All Over

There is something to be said for the freedom that comes with doing music for yourself. There is a luxury a band out working for a label will never have, the ability to create a picture much like the individuals who make up the band. There is no having to stick to a pre-set formula or hold to an idea of what is expected. Organ Failure grasps the idea of non-conformity and runs with it.

The first song, What We Really Want To Do, begins with a touch of funk, while the next song, Devil Why Must You Pursue Me, borrows from folksy, celtic influences and Worms sounds like something from an old jazzy swing club. This is the mood that follows the whole CD. Utmost expression of whatever crosses the musicians that make up the band's mind.

Nothing is left untouched. Music reminiscent of children's television shows are in abundance. The ability of this band to explore every avenue of music makes it all come together perfectly and somehow make sense.

Considering the members of this band are the minds behind local club, Super Happy Funland, there is little surprise at the eclectic nature of the music in the CD. Night after night of watching bands and performance artists of every genre and idea set play on the same bill will definitely open up your mind to any possibility under the sun. This is what we find on this CD, a full view of what the band wants to do.

Oh yeah, there are some covers on the album. A heart-wrenching version of Folsom County Blues recreated by the Cookie Monster titled Cookie Prison Blues, pulls you to near tears of mixed laughter and sorrow. A folksy/celtic recreation of The Clash's Rock The Casbah, gives the old standard a fresh sound while making the song sound great. The cover of Boom, I Got Your Boyfriend just has to be heard. There is nothing I can really say to do it justice.

If you're a fan of produced rock bands that follow a specified path, this album is not for you. It will leave you confused, afraid and possibly bummed out. If you enjoy music that is made for the love of music and doesn't spend a lot of time trying to be polished, clean and produced to no end, this album will get your motor running. Sure, there were a few spots where the insanity reached uncomfortable levels, but the balance was good enough to earn a... - Samuel Barker

Frank Zappa/ Take you out of the mainstream music.
Very Frank Zappa. Something you want to sit down to and just let your imagination go. Not just wierd but like a whole new level of outthere chill music. Great for driving in the car or at a party. And for the price..how could u say no?

Nashville Scene - Our Critics Picks

Like Weird Al Yankovic on a nitrous spree
ORGAN FAILURE If you’ve ever wondered what “Folsom Prison Blues” would sound like sung by Cookie Monster, wonder no more. Like Weird Al Yankovic on a nitrous spree, Houston’s Organ Failure give voice to just these sorts of delirious scenarios, while indulging every waggish whim that orbits in their demented minds. But the band’s covers are far more outré than Weird Al’s literal rip-offs—take their avant-folk approach on “Rock the Casbah.” And they play mostly originals, such as the damaged hip-hop come-on “What We Really Want to Do,” which sounds like an Odelay session hijacked by 13-year-old delinquents. What makes it work is Olivia “Poopy Lungstuffing” Dvorak, whose high-pitched banter at times sounds like one of Bart Simpson’s misfit friends. Organ Failure are the house band at Super Happy Fun Land, a Houston venue for experimental art and music. ( www.organfailure.org ) —JACK SILVERMAN

It made me laugh and think
It was very twisted and right on. "The List of Things that are Bad" - a good combination of things that all suck to various degrees.
I think the use of the kuzos in "Cookie Prision Blues" was very creative.
