This live album is unique to Gary's other efforts. His masterful use of multiple distortion, echo, reverb....etc. devices creates music that you'd never believe came from just one guitar. I play this music when I'm working on my art, it triggers those creative centers and really gets me going.
If you are a fan of spacerock or jazz, or just good unique music, pick this up.

Format: Audio CD
Only recently have I been turned on to the music of Gary Lucas, and I am wholly immersed in his resplendent repertoire. "Skeleton at the Feast" is one of my favorite albums, not just of Gary's, but of all-time. His creations practically defy description with words. One doesn't just hear his music with ears; you experience it within your heart and soul.
This is an album of solo guitars, both electric and acoustic. I've never particularly been a fan of solo electric guitar because I often find it simply raucous. I have no idea how Gary does it, but his guitar sings with a voice all its own, serenading a sweet, psychedelic melody that is like a drop-dead gorgeous woman innocently sauntering by you - you cannot help but turn your head to see if she's for real.
Part of the album is dedicated to the music that Gary Lucas and Walter Horn wrote for live accompaniment to the 1921 German Expressionist film "The Golem." It's all hauntingly rich, stupendous surrealistic music, but one song is dangerously infectious: "The Junker and the Jewess." The first time I heard the song, I was cast completely under a spell under which I never wish to retreat. So sweet, so strange, so whimsical, so innocently devious - all of Gary's quirky but charismatic notes appear to be smiling in unison at their performance which seductively overwhelms the bloodstream. It may be impossible to listen to this song without the score being conducted on the body's muscles. It is that powerful.
"Christmas in Space Medley" is too amazingly beautiful to believe without listening to it oneself. "Bells" is so sweetly haunting, like it really is being broadcasted from space. It serenades the soul to paradise as you obediently follow along the dreamy path that it seems to carve especially for you.

This was Gary Lucas' first solo CD, and it is astonishing. There are some stand-by styles here---a National steel guitar bottleneck instrumental dedicated to Robert Johnson, for example---but the best of this album is based on Lucas' solo electric guitar playing. Lucas has developed a small hive of delays and loops and electronic devices to allow him to set up his own accompaniment to solo over (in a video of his performing, his hands dart from the whammy bar on his guitar to a dial on an electronic box and back again), so that he sounds like two or more guitar players, or a guitarist and synthesiser player, or as if he is playing(in Joe Zawinul's phrase)the native instruments of some undiscovered country. A stand-out here is what Lucas calls his "Christmas in Space Medley," which includes "(Ring Christmas) Bells," "Little Drummer Boy," and Hendrix's "Are You Experienced?" Lucas' work blends musique concrete and minimalist rhythmic insistence with the more usual rock and blues basics. This Electric Lucasland may not be for everyone, but for those who want their guitar music to arrive from somewhere outside the usual orbits, this CD will be perfect.
