Format: Audio CD
Where "Anytime At All" slips into the easy glove of pop-funk-fusion, this debut album is it's darker distant cousin. There's hints of "Dark Magus"-style heaviness, Stravinsky's primal iconoclasm, and a freewheeling improvisatory edge that lets you know right from the start that unexpected sounds and changes will continue to assert themselves.

Where "Anytime At All's" rotating cast ultimately left an aftertaste of Chili Peppers-style jam rock, "Banyan's" steady fourpiece of Watt, Money Mark, Nels Cline and Stephen Perkins provides a far more lasting and wierder listen, dripping with psychic residue.

Watt's ever inventive basslines fuel songs like the standout, "Christmas Tree Park," while Cline's astonishing wiry guitar lines transect and dodge all the little textural bits and samples conjured by Money Mark, Perkins, and production team The Dust Brothers.

The recording of this album is in itself singular: each musician recorded in semi-isolation, wearing headphones that funneled Stravinsky's "Rites of Spring" or other challenging music into their ears. The results were then assembled by the Dust Brothers and David Turin into a record that listens best as a whole, rather than as individual movements.

"Banyan" is an assemblage chock full of left turns, and a testimony to the continuing art of improvisation.

En este album encontramos la reunion de algunas figuras destacadas en el ámbito del rock alternativo en una aproximación a las formas vanguardistas de la improvisación, con elementos extraidos del jazz y de la música clásica. La sección rítmica de Stephen Perkins (Janes Adiction, Porno for Pyros) y Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firehose) constituye, en gran medida, la esencia de este C.D. El album es excelente para comprender las versatilidad y la inteligencia de estas figuras celebres del Rock norteamericano.

I don't know how to use this album...I tried many times...but I can't understand..."Anytime At All" is great..."Live At perkins Palace" is good...This,I don't know...maybe I have to use it in another way...maybe I have to cook it with my eggs & bacon at morning,then maybe it could be ready to digest.
