From the mind of a mad man that lives in a psychedelic perma trip, two projects are born, element 66 and LooNurGooSe. Both projects push the boundaries of a new sonic reality that will tickle the mind and bend the listener’s perception to his own distorted reality.
First, lets break into the world of element 66. People generally want to have comparisons to other music that is familiar to them. This familiarity allows the listener opportunity to compare musical dynamics to something that they are accustomed to listening too.
The people have spoken! Most listeners agree that the unique sound of element 66 is a DNA, genetic hybrid, of the psychedelic vibe of Pink Floyd cross-pollinated with a modern alternative rock sound similar to Linkin Park or Korn.
The technically sophisticated bass playing has a style that feels very inspired by Les Claypool. One gets the sense that the up front and in your face bass is the foundation of the song writing. The song “Denial” has such a tweaked out modulation effect that you’ll forget that you’re listening to low-end frequencies during the opening of the song.
The quantum physic, new age, lyrical content makes you think a scientist wrote the words to the song “god Particle.”
For those who are familiar with the philosophy and the writings of Eckhart Tolle’ you will traverse deep into the words of the song named after him, “Eckhart Tolle.’” The philosophy that everything that happens was meant to happen – “there are no random events” – is completely inspired by his writings.
The song, “Buried...In The LOL (Land Of Liars),” has a huge musical voice that feels like it belongs in the closing song of a horror movie’s credits. It has a feel that it could have been inspired by Tool.
To find a classical piece of music sitting amongst these songs is strange to say the least. However, never letting boundaries dictate creativity, element 66 found room to comfortably fit, “Fur Elise...The Cartoon.”
All in all, Drukis Blah, the first album released by element 66 is an amazingly well put together independent release with 14 emotionally stirring songs that go deep into the musical mind of a Mad Man.
That same creative thinker that gave birth to element 66 also spewed out the funky dark grooves that are now being released under the title LooNurGooSe.
It all began when Fur Roach Music first launched the idea that LooNurGooSe release an instrumental album under its label. The project was spawned to potentially work as a sound track for a video game or possibly to be incorporated as background music for a film. The ideas began morphing deeper and deeper into something that grew much larger than the project had originally been designed.
Once the music took over and the songs took shape they developed a life all on their own. The music began writing itself and no one would have expected a full-length psychedelic grunge album to emerge. Fur Roach Music then proposed a merger from the sound track concept to a full on rock instrumental album. LooNurGooSe is now releasing its first full-length album titled FEED THE ENGINE. This musical adventure takes the listener to the depths of a world that spirals straight into the bowls of a funky dark psychedelic abyss that is filled with strange alien sounds and heavy in your face bass guitar.
After the overwhelming support of these two releases from Fur Roach Music we expect to be hearing a lot more from LooNurGooSe and element 66.
If your mood craves a sound that is saturated with a futuristic spin on psychedelic grunge that bridges the gap of the sonic threshold, then check out LooNurGooSe (FEED THE ENGINE).
If your palate has a taste for the more bizarre, such as being trapped in the mind of a mad man, then step into the depths of the mental hospital and join the insanity of element 66 (Drukis Blah).
Either way you are bound to enjoy the experience of a musical realm that will have your perception completely warped.
