Sure these guys are nuts, but just because they’re zany doesn’t mean they are not talented. They hide their musical gifts behind a wall of hoo-hah in the tradition of the Holy Modal Rounders and the Bonzo Dog Band. There’s much more than meets the ear here. You gotta listen closely and often to pick up all that’s going on. The band’s new double-stuffed, double CD is chock full of zippy insights into the human consciousness from the perspective of one who wouldn’t belong to any society that would accept him or her. Yep, lead singer, guitarist, songwriter and agent provocateur Otar Taktakishvili hails from that Georgia (the one that used to be part of the Soviet Union) and is a true Marxist. His music bears the imprint of Groucho and that Lennon from Liverpool in the most wonderful way.
