ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

“end-of-the-world beat;”
"Knoxville's premier spoken-word improv-rock combo;"
"Knoxville's finest spoken-word/avant-garde meltdown"
... Metro Pulse (Knoxville alternative newspaper)

Rentfro's vision for the "hybridization" of music and prose originated with a love of beat poets like Jack Kerouac, and developed musically over the years through sessions with R.B. Morris, the late Phil Pollard, Tim Lee and countless other local notables. Despite the talented support, Rentfro's witty intellectualism steals the show through a captivating narrative voice that would rival Alan Watts or Morgan Freeman with the everyman's believability of Johnny Cash.
...Knoxville News-Sentinel 24 May '12

Gradually, a core group of local players — all of whom were and are involved in a number of their own projects around town — assembled behind Rentfro to form the Apocalypso Quartet. From the quirky percussive-heavy sounds of (Phil) Pollard to the world music vibes of Laith Keilany to the guitar rock of Tim Lee, the Apocalypso Quartet has become something of a collection of local titans, all assembled to bring Rentfro’s original works to life. ... I liked it being a fan of reggae and reggae having such an Old Testament, Jeremiah-like, oh-ye-children-of-Israel-people-get-right kind of thing,” he said. “And of course, I’m from Cleveland, which has an apocalyptic bent being the headquarters for three or four branches of the Church of God. I just absorbed a lot of that through osmosis growing up.”
... Steve Wildsmith, The Maryville Daily-Times
