ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From F5 Magazine:
"Reminiscent of Echo and the Bunnymen, Morphine and Tom Waits in some of his more edgy moments comes The Cobra Movement.

Named after a short-lived post-WW II art movement that drew together artists from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam, which used a cobra as its symbol with each of the respective cities representing the head, body and tail of the cobra. Not that you need to know that to listen to the album.

A dark and frequently chilling release, Wichita, Kansas is rife with tales of murder ("Avon Calling"), slips toward psychosis (the dark and delicious "Red Scooter Trigger" and "Mr. Sleepy") and the odd and inexplicable ("Stickman Burns Red" and "Golden Boy and the Art Police").

That said, the affair isn't without moments of light(er)(?) matter ("Gato (Means Cat)," "Fear of Snakes") and (maybe) downright rays of light ("The Lessons of Your Life"), plus three short lessons on the original Cobra Movement.

Along the way there's plenty of weird noise (fading radio signals, squeaks and low, mumbled lyrics), lo-fi keyboards and dark, rumbly bass lines.

Wade Hate, Curtis Love, Golden Boy and Francine Perot (the main members of TCM) are joined by Stickman, Boshi Banrai, Sister Hate and Patoonia Boom Boom on what may be one of the most thoroughly bizarre and enjoyable rides you'll take this year."

Now this is something refreshingly different
A very unexpected collection of "art music" If you are looking for a change from the formulaic stuff that infests the radio, these guys are it. Mr. Sleepy is a rocker, GATO MEANS CAT! The instrumental portions are very soundtrack-y- which I dig.

Giggle, guffaw, chortle, snort
Um, I may be slightly biased because I've known Curty and Wadey and loved them for years .... but this makes me love them even more. The whole thing is crazy, mysterious, and irresistable. It is sheer perfection because there is nothing to compare it to. And yes, you'll definitely want to switch to Mary Kay if you're an Avon user ...

buy this and save your soul
This beautiful c.d. gives power to the geeks. This c.d. proves that geeks who have killer imagination, the need to "spill it" on everyone, and a computer, can make absolutely killer, original music. The Cobra Movement is the new rock Jesus. Buy this and save your soul.

Chris Frank-Artist, Noise Connoisseur

A journey for the mind and soul.
The Cobra Movement has proven that very talented visual artists can also be very talented musical artists. Wichita Kansas, the first release from the Cobra Movement, is a unique and sometimes frightening experience. This journey through sound given to us by the likes of Curtis Love, Wade Hate, Golden Boy, and Francine Perot,takes the listener deep inside ones psyche and opens many subconcious doorways along the way. Dive in and enjoy.

impressive product
Highly impressed with the artistic direction of this album. Haunting tunes are composed well and rock, but the creative direction- an homage to the actual "Cobra Movement" in Europe is well done. Very well done.

The Cobra CD will open your ears!
Talk about art created by sounds, this CD is coated in unbelievable mixes of musical intrigue. Not a normal trip through the media of noise. Definitely worth checking out.

The Cobra Movement's "Wichita, Kansas" is a work of art!
Finally, an album that is the remedy to all the corporate rock we are force fed everyday. This CD will take you on a sonic journey, from the soft and beautiful to complete sonic fury! This CD demands that you listen to it from beginning to end... a true work of art. Where has this band been hiding!! I can't stop listening to The Cobra Movement!

King David

Rivals anything done by Modest Mouse or Nuetral Milk Hotel
The Cobra Movement's Wichita, Kansas c.d. is a beautiful collision of thoroughly genius, kick-ass rock that comes out as perfect art. They rival Modest Mouse and Nuetral Milk Hotel in all ways. This is the best c.d. I've heard in a long time.

unpretentious and definitely not by the "rules"
Great to hear a CD that is not bogged down with musical cliches trying to fit into a certain genre. These guys are what they are. And dig this, I checked 'em out: they are artists, not musicians. I mean, real "paint on canvas" artists. They may have missed their calling, because their songwriting is excellent and their performance is honest and unbridled. They definitely throw caution to the wind. Very cool stuff.
