MUZ-BANANA IN PORTUGUESE, CD, 1999, USA MP3/Flac
The second solo album by my Vas Deferens Organization bandmate Matt Castille, Banana In Portuguese was conceived amid a rotating and rather sordid cast of characters that were occupying Matt's orbit circa 1999, the year following VDO's temporary split, when Matt headed back to New Orleans from Dallas and assembled this Frankenstein-ian creation and I hooked up with Joel Zoch and formed Sound. Following directly on from the maximalist aesthetic stance of VDO's Drug Bubbles and accompanied in part by our former VDO bandmate Doug Ferguson (aka Frankie Teardrop, also of Yeti and Ohm), Banana In Portuguese finds Matt burrowing ever deeper down the "All channels open...24 hour alert" rabbit hole we'd pried open with Drug Bubbles; here opening portals into successive universes of drug smeared menace and/or inspired idiocy, all invariably leading to a different species of so-wrong-they're-right banana peel wrong-footings that'll leave you desperately in search of your departed equilibrium.
