There's a rogue cat in town so keep your furry ears near to the ground and expect the unexpected as Mind Fair welcomes you to the weird world of 'Rogue Cat Sounds', a brand new label where anything goes, everything blows and where others may play it safe they refuse stubbornly to conform to the 'norm'. Dean Meredith (Chicken Lips, The Rhythm Odyssey, Mind Fair, THE M.E.B) and Ben Shenton (The Main Stem, Mind Fair, THE M.E.B) launch a radical new imprint of impressionably psychedelic discoid freak-outs, tropically blues discord, and no-holds-barred face-to-the-floor oddness.
Dean and Ben are surrogate parents of the well received 'Mind Fair' outfit which last year (2011) ended International Feel's annual release schedule with a bang! in the shape of '...druggy, Balearic, Armenian influenced divebomb..' 'Kerry's Scene' and the self titled country psychedelia of 'Mind Fair' and have a self titled long player on the way for release on Phil South's highly acclaimed Golf Channel label.
The First release for their Rogue cat sound's imprint is the "No Stress Express!"a beautiful piece of swampy psychedelic disco/rock the 11min original takes you on a dark ethereal adventure thru spiky guitar riffs, mutant brass stabs, melting warm fender rhodes piano, silky deep synth chords, an array of sexy afro percussion, heavy dub live bass, and a lush but eerie live string section which all come on like a Dinosaur L jam session via a David Mancuso loft party!
So go on.. take a walk on the Rogue side of town baby!
FEEDBACK / REVIEWS
Ashley Beedle - Lovely stuff! Loving the NYC version and Rogue Dub
Idjut Boys - What a great release, all versions! Big up thy vibration
Max Essa - This is great! Love the wigged out soul of the original (11 min) version very much. Sounds like Prince locked in a room with a bag of weed and Liquid Liquid!
Testpressing.org Review
Spoons solos, white Pop Rock vocals, Lets Go Swimming clusters, distressed clangers, random sax burts, Stones Csympathetic percussion, Rockabilly twanging and a hint of Nassau`s clipped post-modern funk all swirl randomly. Admirably shambolically even. Tree House/School Bell turned Princes Little Red Corvette. As it falls apart. The NYC version is Arthur Baker remixing The Stones for a Risco Connection LP with the other Arthur, Russell, Peter Gordon, Kip Hanrahan and Lester Bowie on session, while the Rogue Dub is a more overt Russell/Gibbons homage. The production on this leapt out of the car stereo, amidst the bulk of New Disco stuff. It will probably sound amazing at The Loft. A pretty strange, unique and timeless Disco record.
