Editorial Reviews

Tav Falco's historico-musico revue, Panther Burns, originated in 1979 at the nadir of Memphis' postmodern, post-Beale, post-Sun, post-Stax era, when the Mississippi River town had seemingly disappeared from the cultural map and shriveled into an obsolescent landmark. The newest release, CONJURATIONS: Seance for Deranged Lovers -- just recorded in a secret studio in Saint-Germaindes- Pres on Paris' left bank -- is the definitive masterpiece of the Panther Burns. Refining the themes explored by the group over their career: unrequited love, betrayal, and lost causes, the new record is composed of all original songs. CONJURATIONS consummates Falco's vision with a particularly poetic, yet turbulent thrust. His exceptional voice, described by one journalist as sounding like Marlene Dietrich under torture, evokes the phenomenal fires of the Panther Burns and is supported by a line-up of players devoted to the band over the past decade: Giovanna Pizzorno -- drums; Gregoire Cat -- guitar; and Laurent Lanouziere -- bass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic New Tav Falco CD! October 19, 2012
By Eyes
I saw Tav Falco and the Panther Burns last night in NYC. He and they put on a fantastic show. Playing both new songs and old favorites. They were tight and rocking; each player has real stage presence. And of course, Tav is an American original. His stage patter is modern themed but is in the tradition of the great raconteurs and on-stage musician-historians. He is carrying forward the great music of America, starting with Blues then rockabilly and rock and roll mixed in his own inimitable blend. This band rocks and can hit a groove like no other. It's almost a straight line from the blues to Elvis to Jim Dickinson to the Stones to David Johansen and Tav Falco has been patently part of this line for a long time and is carrying it forward. It's amazing how close his band sounds when they jam to what Dylan's recent bands sound like...this is no coincidence nor is it one copying the other. It is both independently carrying on and amalgamating the music of what Greil Marcus has lovingly called "The Old, Weird America."

I purchased "Cunjurations," Tav's most recent CD, directly from him on the bandstand after the show. "Conjurations" is a beautiful CD for "music lovers" as Tav would call us. It is rocking (hard at times), swaying, grooving, always rhythmic and a joy to listen to. Tav's vocals are in fine form and the songs are as mysterious and lyrically interesting as his always have been. He's the thinking man's Elvis. The production values are stellar (no muddy psychobilly here)as the sound is clear and sharp, the instruments strong and the vocals clear. This is a mood CD in many ways and the spell it casts is relaxing yet spellbinding. Kudos to a true American original, we are lucky to have him.
