The Fantods

by The Fantods

Their repertoire of original music runs the gamut from tightly arranged countryesque songs in the vein of Ryan Adams and Tom Waits (as if there were such a vein) to extended high-energy improvisations.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Fantods :

How can just three musicians create such a racket?

Well, there’s Joe McKenna on the Bass Fiddle. Joe was conceived and born near a nuclear power plant, and has twenty fingers.

David Newman, drummer and carnivore, sleeps most all the day long and expresses his dreams in rhythms. David owns several thousand acres near Moscow, Idaho, where he raises badgers.

Ben (no last name), was found in a barrel floating in the middle of Lake Michigan when he was 27 years old. Having grown to maturity deprived of human contact, he continues to struggle with language, especially French.

*****************

The Fantods are a trio from Reno, Nevada.
They play old, somewhat damaged instruments in a style that might best be described as Hillbilly-funk fusion.

Or not.

Their repertoire of mostly original music runs the gamut from tightly arranged countryesque songs in the vein of Ryan Adams and Tom Waits (as if there were such a vein) to extended high-energy improvisations featuring the violin, mandolin and guitar of Ben Wilborn, the upright and downright funky bass of Joe McKenna, and the assorted percussion of David Newman.

Their shows feature great Americana vibe, the excitement of musical spontaneity, and excellent musicianship and groove.

One of the best CD's released in 2007
What a revelation! Excellent songwriting and performances, combined with outstanding production and engineering. Warm, captivating; a joy to listen to again and again. This album is a a true masterpiece, a cohesive body of work that should be in everyone's collection. Easily one of the best CD's I've listened to in the last 10 years.
