Product Description

Pete LaBonne lives out in the woods...way out in the woods...of upstate New York, in a dirt-floor cabin with his wife Shelley and a single extension cord to power the tape recorder that he seems to have been using almost constantly for the last ten or twenty years. We’re guessing the resulting mountain of music -a small segment of which comprises his debut CD, “Meditation Garden” -will be compared to iconoclastic folks like Captain Beefheart, the Shaggs, and Frank Zappa, not because he sounds like them but because that’s who you get compared with when you’re funny as hell, and peculiar, and they can’t figure out who you sound like.

Looking a little deeper, you might also spot some Alex Chilton, with whom Pete once performed; he’s also appeared with Richard Hell and Earl King, And now the name-dropping starts to add up, because Pete is in fact a backwoods maniac with absurd verbal talents and a passion for soul music and The Almighty Hook. The wordplay is dazzling and hilarious, but there’s heart and real songs involved; a spirit of gleeful anarchy rules a roiling compost of rhythms, and sometimes it sounds like a bent, bizarro version of the famous basement tapes of Bob Dylan and the Band, all in glorious LaBonne-a-sonic lo-fi!


"One listen will rend any skeptic speechless and temporarily impotent...” -- Christopher J. Schepp

"The wild array of song structures and field hollers combined with caustic poetry nearly numbs the senses!" -- Christopher J. Schepp

“...Only long, stringy sentences suffice in describing the credibility of this singer-songwriting musician/maniac..." -- Christopher J. Schepp
