So Heavy Jugs showed up in the mail earlier in the month. Johnny is a multi instrumentalist and his quirky albums make him the ultimate opening act for Frank Zappa. His albums take you on a journey and you never know where you will end up. Could he be singing though a toy horn or will he open with a white stripes grove as he does in Once a man.

I personally think that anyone that likes avant guard music especially zappa would be very excited to get this album. Typically not my favorite style of music but every works for me in this album. I have had the pleasure of seeing Johnny in Phideaux 5 times and I really like his song on Phideaux’s number 7 album Thermonuclear cheese.

I have also seem him live twice as his solo work and once yet again with Autumn Electric so I have the advantage over most listeners of being accustomed to his less accessible music.

Please check this album out if you like more experimental progressive rock.
