ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Jr. Analogue Monster: Ep1 Sends of the Farther"

"Jr. Analogue Monster" is the first named album by SIDzCarbonatedMilk founder/leader SIDney Howard. "J.A.M." began in name in a conversation between sales engineer/musician Bob Furlong and SIDney Howard on the occasion of his purchase of the Moog Minitaur analog bass synthesizer module—the "brain" of Moog Taurus, famously used by Rush bassist Geddy Lee. Months earlier SID had purchased the Tom Oberheim rerelease of his classic S.E.M. as the new MIDI connectible S.E.M. Pro.

"With this, I'm going to be a junior analog monster," he remarked. "Hey, that's a great name for an album."

"You should," Bob encouraged.

As an analog synthesist and experimenter for over thirty-five years, SIDney Howard has compiled much music that would fit such a title. However, as such a prolific experimenter, the fun is really in creating new music with the little monsters. As such, "Jr. Analogue Monster" is a mix of newer sounding old songs and old-sounding new ones. The synthesizer basses and leads are heavily inspired by the fat Moog filters, the quirkier SEM circuitry, and the genre pioneers who paved paths with them. From Stevie, to Chick, to Bernie (Worrell from whom SIDney programmed synths on a George Clinton produced session for Well Red), the sound of seventies Jazz-Funk is celebrated throughout the sixteen selections. There is even the sound of Theremin threaded through a spaced-cowboy ballad. It's all driven by passionate drums and percussion, crazy-funky guitars, and swaggering bass-lines.

While the emphasis is on synthesizers, "J.A.M." is almost as much a vocal work featuring daringly wound background tapestries, Funk and Soul snarls, and sweet soft soaring leads. The poetry behind the lyrics laughs, cries, encourages, and hums along.

This album's analog richness is owed to a monstrous finishing touch: mastering by renowned legendary audio engineer Ed Wolfrum. "J.A.M." on!
