Burning Ear Hairs
:: Burning Circuits ::
Wow. Talk about something ending up being a lot less cool than its cover art. When I was a kid, I always remember seeing pulp novels like John Carter of Mars or Doc Savage, Man of Bronze, and inevitably any time I'd pick one up, the dramatic and vivid artwork on the outside would kick the ass of the story contained within. This is much like this, except it's not even as cool as that.
Michael Urbaniak did some jazz, jazz fusion, and as he was "always looking to the future" as the liner notes here say, was very interested in making electronic music. He was an excellent violinist, as well. Why then would he make rigidly funky electronic music that sounds like Herbie Hancock's "Rock-It" sodomizing "She Blinded Me With Science" on Falco's Persian rug? I have no idea, but if there was ever breakdancing music for nerds, this would be it. I've spared you the long version, which is over six minutes long. I know by typing that last sentence that in approximately 6-10 months, someone will stumble across this post and request not only that I put the short version back up, but that I also post the long version. Does. Not. Compute.
