Tyrants in Therapy CD Review

The Tyrant Michael, Writer/Producer/Singer and AbbeAbbe, Writer/Producer/Singer

The Tyrant’s in Therapy cd  High Class Trash is a large body of work that covers just about every aspect of the human condition in styles that range from calypso to country to a song Crosby, Stills Nash and Young could have written.

There are 21 songs on High Class Trash, told you it is a large body of work. Track 17 and 18 are listed incorrectly on the insert and oddly when the song comes up on the player it has the correct name for the song on insert but a different song plays.

Meet Sacramento Band Prylosis

Sacramento band Prylosis

Sacramento band Prylosis

This is an interview that is long past due. My computer crashed loosing the interview and the photos from the night. I found notes written in the dark of a bar, under the influence…not the best way to write notes. So with my bad notes and spotty memory here is an interview with one of the best bands around.

Carl was kind enough to make following  correction for me. Thanks Carl.    “Our former bass player was training to be a fireman, and mispronounced the word ‘pyrolysis’ by saying ‘Prylosis.’ We all thought it was a cool sounding name so it stuck, even though it had no meaning. Later on, we disected the word and the closest meaning we could put to it was with the latin origin ‘Pry’-being ahead in rank, and ‘osis’-the condition of… so with those two put together it makes the meaning roughly “The condition ofbeing   ahead a rank.” So it kind of worked out.”

TYRANTS HELD OVER FOR MORE THERAPY AT TAIX’S 321 LOUNGE

These guys are great check them out on myspace

Tyrants In Therapy on MySpace

WHO: Tyrants in Therapy (www.tyrantsintherapy.com), a duo composed of Abbe Kanter and Michael J. They call their shows “Neo Nightclub” because it recalls the glamorous 30s and 40s style nightclubs that held sway in L.A. decades before the Tyrants were born. This is the third month in a row TIT has been held over at the cozy yet plush 321 Lounge at Taix since the release of their new High Class Trash CD. Nine years in the making, the massively entertaining 21-track opus includes vivid and often hilarious takes on love, sex, and just about everything else including the environment, astrology, censorship, and cowboys. Bloggers are praising the long-awaited CD: “Tyrants: please don’t make us wait another decade for your next record” pleads one reviewer on cdbaby.com.  Another adds, “… the Tyrants have mastered an off-kilter sensibility…” which is putting it mildly.  Show dates below.

The uniquely conceived initiative, with funds earmarked specifically for emerging filmmakers of African nationality and residence, offers eligible and participating filmmakers the chance to be awarded $10,000 in financing for pre-production, production, and/or post-production on their narrative short film made in continental Africa and tapping into the resources of the film industry there.

Their short films are, respectively, Long Coat, a drama about a young Hutu coming to terms with Rwanda’s and his own family’s past; The Tunnel, a 1980s-set story centering around a 10-year-old girl’s quest; The Abyss Boys, a thriller about an illegal trade in a small fishing town; the public transportation musical N’Dar [Saint Louis Blues]; and Pumzi [Breath], a futuristic sci-fi tale.

Cathy-Anne McClintock CD Review

Cathy-AnneMcClintockWriting music reviews can be little over whelming and can make you feel like you are slogging through mud. There is always a pile of CD containing envelopes on my desk.

In those envelopes you will find garnets, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and pearls. If you are like me there are a few you will say you don’t have time to review. Those are the reviews you can’t bring yourself to write. An honest review would be, “someone should have loved you enough to say don’t record that”.

Then it happens you open the envelope pop in the CD and you hear an exquisite voice.  You realize you have fished a perfect diamond out of that envelope pile. In this case it is the voice of Cathy-Anne McClintock.
