- Brainwashing For Dirty Minds by Darth Vegas
1 review. Write a review for us »
Ha, this is nuts! These Aussie weirdos Darth Vegas are here to entertain us with some completely insane Fantomas-meets-APATT-meets-World/Inferno-meets-Joe Meek-meets-Benny Hill cheekiness. This seven-piece employ brass and strings alongside the usual rock instrumentation for a scorchingly accomplished journey through a myriad of styles with a schizophrenia and wit that recalls that Zappa/Beefheart-style virtuosic silliness. The brass-heaviness keeps making me think of the soundtrack to a little film called 'The Mask' where this guy finds a mask that turns him green and gives him some kind of zoot suit. Phil thinks it will appeal to fans of Messer Chups. It's a really epic, playful, imaginative piece of work. There are places where this sounds much more like a Jason Forrest mashup than an actual live band playing, such is their tightness. Insane swing-metal-jazz with bright flashes of blink-and-you'll-miss-it melody. A carnival of fun.
