ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rookie officer Al Gebroni had two reasons to be nervous. Not only was this his first night on duty as a member of Albuquerque Police Department’s party patrol, but riding next to him was APD's Chief of Police, who had thought it wise to conduct a ride-along on this particular Saturday night.
Both men's eyes widened as they approached the house party. The squad car rolled to a stop, the third to arrive. Through the front door, upbeat syncopated rhythms pounded as an invisible wall of brass forced the officers to a halt. An astounding vibrato swelled as the police chopper hovered overhead, the sounds pulsating, seemingly in step with the crowd of carefree dancers. The Ghetto Bird was the Leslie Speaker Cabinet and the horns were the B3 Organ. The spotlight from the aircraft shown brightly, revealing a saturated front yard that overflowed onto the street. The party people only danced harder, for now there was an audience.
The officers fought their way through the crowd to get to the source. And it was a fight indeed. With the exception of a few fleeing youths, the crowd appeared undaunted and unified in their celebration. The officers approached the house fearlessly, as the skanking/swaying crowd outside showed no signs of anguish or malicious intent. The scene inside, however, was more roughneck than expected. Upon entering the room, Officer Gebroni met immediate impact from a drive crazy member of the mosh pit, whose head caught Gebroni’s on the bridge of the nose. The officer braced himself as his vision blurred. Chaos quickly came to a halt, as the Chief ripped the chord from the socket, literally removing the musicians' power source. In a delayed response, the mosh pit came to a stand still, and a dozen crowd surfers were lowered to the floor. Officer Gebroni, still dazed, recognized the Chief's whisper, "This has got to be the party of the year."
The party was Crazyfool's fifth show in three days, as the band returned from a brief whirl-wind Southwest tour earlier in the day. The Chief recognized the members of the band, as this was not their first encounter. When Gebroni’s vision returned, he took special care to commit their faces to memory, knowing that this meeting would not be their last.
CrazyFool's high energy live show has become one of the most popular in New Mexico and surrounding states. The band members are no strangers to hard work, performing over 150 times since 2001 on over 30 stages. Members of CrazyFool have shared stages with artists such as Yellowman, The Toasters, Eek-a-Mouse, Ziggy Marley, The Wailers, Andrew Tosh, The Phunk Junkeez, and Israel Vibration. Their appeal lies in their unique musical approach, wonderful band chemistry, and knack for soliciting crowd participation and interaction. The band continues to blend elements of Reggae, Ska, Hip Hop, and Soul in a way that appeals to a wide array of listeners and party goers. Combining thick groove-oriented bass with off beat drums, driving horns, and vocal harmony, CrazyFool’s compositions are deep, yet easily approachable. The band's superb songwriting raises the standard in a typecast genre saturated with repetition. The band, CrazyFool, touts a log of over 30 original songs, paired with a few carefully chosen covers to comprise 3 hours worth of music available at each performance. Along with a little help from an amazingly devoted and ever growing fan base, and the support of a dynamite and always improving Albuquerque music scene, the music of CrazyFool continues to play an important role in diversifying popular music in the Southwest and across the globe.

Infectious grooves
Very impressive achievement by Crazyfool. Clever lyrics, awesome arrangements, killer hooks, great rhythm, clean production, extremely likable, impossibly catchy and dance-able. Great to see one of my favorite artists Delano Rock on the album art. Points off for being too sexy. tone it down a bit.

The Daily Lobo, November 14, 2006


There is a strange trend on hip-hop albums versus other kinds of CDs. I have noticed that the former are often chalk full of songs, with track listings frequently going into the twenties. Sure, half of them are skits. The point is that they give the listener lots of material to listen to and brood over. One is lucky to get more than ten songs on a typical pop album. Maybe these types of bands find it harder to create music as compared to rap acts, but I am not so sure. Rare is the band that takes upon itself the burden of delivering enough material to fill up an eighty-minute CD. Crazyfool, Albuquerque’s premier reggae and ska act, is diverse enough to do so without sounding tedious on their new 699.8 megabyte CD, Train of Thought.
Train of Thought is Crazyfool’s sophomore LP, and it is a hook-filled pop foray into the territory of Sublime. It springboards from ska, reggae, hip hop, and punk rock and dives headlong into well-arranged tunes that are filled with instrumentation which avoids sounding overly produced. As feng shui is to interior decorating, so this album is to the aural dimension. Crazyfool uses the classic reggae minimalist ethic that is defined by lots of simply played instruments arranged orchestrally to create a pastiche of sound as abstract as a Navajo throw rug and as spiritual as such. The whole is most definitely not equal to the sum of the parts.
Tempo changes from two drop reggae to double-time ska are often abrupt in other contexts, but here they give the music a pulse and swell that must be killer to watch in a live show. Melancholy horn lines communicate their non-verbal sadness by underscoring the street oriented lyrics that are straight up Nuevo Mexico. For example, listening to the chanting of “la llorona” on the reggae song Carried Away conjures up images of a Caribbean-meets-Southwest theme in which Jamaican patois is peppered by Spanish calo slang.
