ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Bad Mammoth" is the debut solo album by California noise-maker Alex Segal. Defying most laws of nature and society, Alex played all the instruments, wrote all the music and words, and produced the album.

So, "Bad Mammoth," -- why that? Is it "bad" as in "good" and "mammoth" as in "big"? Or "bad" as in "bad" and "mammoth" as in the prehistoric land mammal? Is the album about a really awful trip to Mammoth Mountain in NorCal? Is it Alex's Native American name? Those are some, none, or all of the answers.

A wide range of influences can be detected on this album in the genres of blues, rock, jazz, funk, hip-hop and even musical theatre. While the genre may be musically hybrid, the project strives to preserve the tradition of songwriting in a time when this art form is being lost to the increasingly prevalent mash-up culture. It flatly rejects the notion that all the great songs have been written and it is simply time to remix the ones we have.

"True", "Tame Me (1)" and "Tame Me (2)" owe their gnarly arrangements to those ruthless miscreants known as The Rough-House Gang (Kylen Deporter, Nick Chamian, and Alex Segal).

Those killer backup vocals? Yep, you guessed it. Tara Miller.

Alex's music toys with expanding upon blues and rock traditions. His rapid-fire rhapsodizing sits atop a musical structure that strives to both preserve and progress the idea of "the song."
