Joe+N

Vital Weekly

Joe+N's 3inch has two pieces of guitar, steel strings? Either de-tuned or tuned to some exotic scale? and looped melodica which unfortunately for me sounded at times a little like a harmonica, especially on the second of the two live tracks, which even more unfortunately at times sounded like The Rock Iron Line by Lonnie Donegan, such are the perils of live improv I once realized that we were drifting into the theme tune from the magic roundabout. So leaving the dubious accidents of track 2 - track 1 was more thought provoking- it builds pleasant steel string riffs and chords- and I was thinking how best to describe this - and decided on simple associations rather than eccentric metaphor, what came to my mind for perhaps no good reason - or by virtue of the piece was- Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights or Matisse's le luxe calm et volupte.. A memorable fancy? (jliat) -- [Joe+N - Head Cold 3\" CDR on Dirtydemos]
