Menegon, Lucio: Sonic Demons

Lucio Menegon is an experimental artist, guitar player and some sort of electronics wiz. He gathered a bunch of guest artists to add "improvisational" elements to his journey.

This type of "music" is a bit hard to appreciate and is not for everybody, neither is it the thing you'll most likely spin at any time. I found the compositions mostly cohesive in their own experimental way. Off course improvised parts came into play to bring touches of surprises and variation. Some of this music carries an ambient feel, while other parts are more psychedelic or even totally hectic. I can feel inspiration coming from bands of the seventies like: Egg, King Crimson and the Mothers of Invention. I can hear Dave Stewart going nuts over the tone generator in a few instances, such as on " Shrunken Head" and "Experiments with the Force". Ian Underwood seems to be "wipping it all" on the sax in "Shrunken Head", while the hectic drumming of the Mothers is quite present on: "Resident Tourette" and "Killing Green". Lucio's guitar playing is pretty un-orthodox too. He deliberately de-tunes his guitar in some way unknown to me, in a number of places. Examples of this could be heard on "The Debigulator" and "Vulcan's Whish".

My personal favorite tunes are: "Lucifer's Melt Down: (dark/psychedelic) , as well as tracks 10 to 12, namely "Vulcan's Whish", " Scattered Brain" and "Sonic Demons".
