Snakefingers Vestal Virgins' - Night of Desirable Objects.

(Mediafire link below)

I only recently discovered the extraordinary talent of Snakefinger and find myself utterly beguiled by his esoteric genius. I am a great admirer of 'The Residents' and after hearing Snakefinger's solo material I became quite aware of how integral his uber-skronk guitar genius was to the overall texture of the Eyeball kings of dementoid pop. Generally there's is little I enjoy less than the self-aggrandizing playing of a 'virtuoso' guitarist; but Snakefinger is something quite special indeed. Being a rapid fan of Beefheart and Zappa I swiftly recognized some familiar idiosyncratic musical patterns they also share with Snakefinger's infectious gonzoid psychotronic oeuvre. This man's delirious songsmithery and guitar wizardry is woefully underrated and the scarce availability of his solo works is, sadly, unlikely to change that in the near future;but one hopes this might change.

Snakefinger - 'Chewing Hides The Sound' (1979) 

Thus far this might be one of my 'Snakefinger' faves, not least because of the entirely splendid covers of Kraftwerks' 'The Model' & truly brain-broiling interpretation of Morricone's 'Magic and Ectasy'; and his original composition 'kill the great raven' is quite magnificent.

Another glorious heft of Snakefinger!

The comedy writing spree continues!

Rather than be a lazy shit I have been busy writing more and more genius material for my new comedy project. (Interesting that I only planned to do this as a decompression project) It has really turned into something quite special and I am very excited about sending it out into the world. What is really rewarding is how quickly the characters became defined, solid, utterly genuine; I am especially pleased with the introduction of the cat character. He really is a perfect comedy entity, when I write with this degree of quality I no longer question the last years huge amount of maddening work.
