Album Notes
Dr. Mystery is a guy with a mutant double-neck guitar/bass, a chain of looping devices, and an over-heated sampler. A review of a performance at the Olympia Experimental Music Festival in IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION called the music of Dr. Mystery "Very original - mysterious - this has that timeless quality." METAPHYSICAL BALLYHOO is a set of drum n' bass and ambient textures with guitar work ranging from tightly patterned rock to avant-noise. On several tracks vocal samples of infamous poiticians are intelligently used - as is an amourus invitation from a Japanese lady. If you liked Derek Baileys "Guitar, Drum N' Bass" CD you might like this; if you like sample juggling culture jammers like Negativeland or the Bran Flakes you might like this; check it out!

New Review from ROCTOBER #37 -- "lo-fi futuristic mad scientist -- bedroom music shouldn't be introspective sensitivity, it shold be about Bush taking drugs, re-imagining the Blues, and the last version of "Danny Boy" before the Apocalypse."

Beautifully creative work punctuated with expert guitar work, looney vocals!
From a bass drum-pounding, manic guitar-twanging, clever, hilarious manipulation of a George Bush speech to a mind-searing, masterful, Hendrix-inspired mangling of the classic Irish heart-warmer, Danny Boy, Dr. Mystery's latest effort is a stimulating, ear-pleasing, sometimes thought-provoking journey through the wondrously creative mind of an original, highly experienced musician. Dr. Mystery's music has enormously evolved from his first cassette produced in 1993. Not to be missed fast-paced funhouse of edgy, unusual tunes!
