Up till starting this project I didn’t know of Don Van Vliet AKA Captain Beefheart. My friend Michael told me well over a year ago about this genius, masochistic, musician friend of his, named Wade, who was attempting to transcribe some difficult and fascinating music so they could play it…. Little did I know I would be drafted, and what an education! I was challenged, grew as a musician and developed new relationships. To: John French, Don and everyone who played this music, “I tip my hat you you sirs!” To: Wade the genius without whom this would have been impossible, “stay away from me.”
Wow! Getting to post this is a pleasure! It’s been a long time coming. The music on this first album is primarily Chris’s. This band has existed prior my involvement, Andrew and Chris have played together in other iterations of Polaroy. I’s crazy that we started tracking in April 2007 and the album wasn’t out till 2009, but it’s here now! There are other songs on the MySpace, but these are my favorites.
Conceived of and led by Johnathan Hurley the band borrowed their name from the cult classic of the same title. It was the bands one function to watch a re-edited Evil Dead and write an original score. We met weekly for a year to do this. However the You Tube video is no longer available as Starz Media LLC has blocked the content on copyright grounds.Here is a little taste of the sounds but not of the sights.
