Illegitimus Non Carborundum

by Zakas

''Zakas's album is unpretentious, raw and ever-so-menacing, an undistilled spew of sounds and textures like the soundtrack to some never-produced indie sci-fi movie. In 18 tracks, Zakas had managed to create the sonic equivalent to cultural dissonance.

Review: "Illegitimus Non Carborundum"
by Mac Tonnies

http://www.mactonnies.com/cydonia.html (page 42)

Las Vegas musician Zakas ("Shunk Daddy Grind") has
released his second studio album, "Illegitimus Non
Carborundum." Like Zakas' eye-popping website,
"Illegitimus Non Carborundum" is a topical, irreverent
labyrinth. A first listening reveals a paranoid -- but
playful -- fusion of styles and genres, with a healthy
emphasis on technology run rampant ("Micromachines,"
which suggests pending developments in
nanotechnology), urban myth ("El Chupacabra," which
boasts a convincing "live" depiction of the elusive
South American blood-sucker) and cosmic censorship
("God's Black Space," about the Face on Mars and our
culture's pervasive instruments of knowledge
filtration).

"God's Black Space" -- an angry, guitar-driven song --
is interspersed with narration adopted from the
Cydonian Imperative, making it the first musical
venture I've had anything to do with. I'm even
credited in the liner notes. So while I can't help but
listen to "Illegitimus Non Carborundum" without a
measure of personal bias, I find myself liking this
weird, uncategorical album for its purely intrinsic
qualities. Zakas's album is unpretentious, raw and
ever-so-menacing, an undistilled spew of sounds and
textures like the soundtrack to some never-produced
indie sci-fi movie. Alternately grinding and breezy,
"Illegitimus Non Carborundum" is punctuated by some
well-conceived and engaging instrumentals (i.e.,
"Monster Surf," "Dreamberry"), which highlight the
record's predominantly metallic soundscape.

"Illegitimus Non Carborundum" is one of the quirkier
CDs you're likely to hear in this lifetime. In 18
tracks, Zakas had managed to create the sonic
equivalent to conspiracy-culture's collective
overmind. The result, spontaneous and pregnant with
images, is an aural singularity crafted with precision
and even humor.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Surf Pirates playing in the Spanish Inquisition, 
chasing Goat Suckers with Robotic Nano Tech.
Dreamy UFO's landing on the Face of Mars 
and Native Americans dance to Chinese Reggae. 
Brom paints beyond LOTR allowing Karma's Love Revenge 
to slip quietly back into the sea.

Primordial rhythms fuse with extraterrestrial nuances...
Primordial rhythms fuse with extraterrestrial nuances,
like an cosmic astronaut jamming with the cavemen.
Makes me wonder just where the hell did Zaka really come from.

a fantasy album like no other
What the hell?...wow, this is one of the most unpredictable albums I've ever heard. Not quite sure how Zakas starts with pirates and moves on to aliens and things weirder, but most tracks are utter masterpieces. SciFi, fantasy, and horror spring to life through stunningly visual songs and dramatizations. Sing along, laugh out loud, or close your eyes and see it all. Predominantly metal and surf, with reggae and more thrown in for good measure. You will never find another adventure like this...until the next Zakas!

Sean Madden

It is a well produced, intelligently arranged piece of art.
"This CD illustrates how far Zakas can stretch his creative abilities. It is a well produced, intelligently arranged piece of art. The far-out ambient, deep space soundscapes that accompany the music fit in perfectly-- like the well-placed ting of a cymbal. Bang! Bam! Kinda like old Hawkwind. On top of all this-- it has balls; big nasty balls with iron spikes and a rusty jizz delivery tube that spews its demon-filled load right into your brainstem. Snat! This is not for those pinkboy conservative types. Hotcha!"

Simply put: Zakas has created a brilliant CD full of music that has some of the most
ORIGINAL IDEAS ever assembled in an ALBUM!
The BEATLES REVOLVER or SERGEANT PEPPER
comes to mind when listening to the tracks on this CD!
Every ZAKASONG or ZAKASTRUMENTAL
takes you on a journey and you never can predict where he'll go next!
(UNLIKE SO MANY ARTISTS TODAY YOU KNOW BEFORE THE CHORUS)
GREAT WORK Z and also to your PRODUCER Bill McCLIRK!!!!!!!
