New Music With A Science Fiction Flavor
By Kelly Hoffman
since the days of disco have we, mere earthlings, had the
pleasure of a full length album from Randy Jones. Most people
will remember him as the original cowboy from the Village
People. His latest collaboration Imagining Mandolins
is very imaginative indeed.
with writer, composer, producer Will Grega, the two claim
the music is actually channeled through them and is in fact
of alien origin. This alien artifact had been discovered long
ago and examined by many historians in the past but is only
now being made public due to this duo's hard work. The complete
story behind the alien invasion which has resulted in the
human race as we now know it can be found at Randy Jones web
site. ( www.randyjonesworld.com
CD is being billed as Sci-Fi electronica and you really can't
argue with that assessment. This certainly is not the disco
dance music one might have expected out of an original member
of the Village People and with the revival of the seventies
happening all around us.
The majority of the tracks have a distinct techno beat to
them. Sounds and samples that bring to mind the music of My
Life With Thrill Kill Kult and similar bands. This is
certainly the case with their first single Flying Saucer.
Another great techno song off the disk is The Visitors.
While, Impossible Star, a song about the sun has a
definite beat that seems to come straight out of the sci-fi
flick Liquid Sky. A few of the songs are much slower
with a more ambient or trance feel to them. Science fiction
elements are implanted in songs through out the disk revealing
the true alien nature of this CD.
Visit Randy Jones' web site for more information and photographic
documentation of the history of this alien artifact.
While there give a listen to any of the songs on the new disk.
