The side project of Zach Hill from Hella and Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson! And some other guy from Masters Of Reality that no one cares about! And some other guest musicians!

The side project of Zach Hill from Hella and Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson! And some other guy from Masters Of Reality that no one cares about! And some other guest musicians! This mostly instrumental album plays on prog-rock, Sabbath riffs, bitch-ass drumming, noises, chants, and other stuffs. While "Mud Puppies" is the best damn Sabbath I've heard in a while, "Inner Child Abuse" sounds like Alice Coltrane being raped by space aliens. In a good way. "The Smoking Man Returns" continues on in the aforementioned inappropriate reference to Alice Coltrane style. "Weird Rock" stands out as if Akfrika Bambataa was influenced by metal instead of Kraftwerk. "Mashed" could very well be Neil Young on speed, but the title track, "I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine," makes poor Alice bend over one more time. After a long intro, "No Umbrellas" turns into a straight ahead rocker. The album is rounded out with "Apartment 31," a ballad-esque slow jam like the Black Crows on drugs, er, wait. Like the Black Crows playing straight ahead and digging on space rock. That's better.

Though playing the comparison game was fun, I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine is actually very unique when heard. The eclectic combination of song types expands the band's potential to work with whatever they want instead of being pigeonholed into any one type of genre. Though, as a side project by three people who come from very different musical backgrounds, the album seems a little bi-polar at times. Songs here are mostly rejected ideas from their full-time projects. It seems the thing that makes Goon Moon unique also can be seen as a drawback.

Regardless, Goon Moon's I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine is referred to as a mini-album, and seems to be merely an introduction to the talent and possibilities that lie deeply hidden in these three musicians.

Got it playing right now, only way to discribe it is, A Modern Day Uma Guma (Pink Floyd). Very cool strangeness. Do listen when on shrooms for best effect.
For the songs, did they just end?...or just start, ...very fun cool weird cd thats all over the place, the mix is great sounding.
This is great, go get it, I got it for under 10 bucks, well worth it to watch my wifes looks when its cranking.
Highly recommended.

Bobkaboom got it right., BUT, I SUSPEND YOU FROM ROCK SCHOOL. Some unknown called Chris Goss?? You outta here bro. FIRED.
Masters of Reality are CLASSIC and the voice of what rock is about.
SUSPENDED

"Some other guy from Masters of Reality that noone cares about.."??? I don't need to toot Chris Goss's horn any more than it already gets tooted, but the guy's a genius and directly and indirectly responsible for much of today's rock. So allow me state that I "care" about Goss and I'm not alone in my feelings. You sir, or madam, need to go back to Rock School, cuz class is in session, and you're about to get a tardy, maybe even a detention.

Hey, guess what? I have the press sheet, I know who Chris Gross is and what he did, and to be honest, I still don't give a shit. Know why? I'm in motherfuckin' Prague for five weeks, bitch. Snizzzzapp!

"And some other guy from Masters Of Reality that no one cares about! "

...that would be Chris Goss and you should bow before him: Kyuss producer, Queens of the Stone Age and Desert Sessions collaborator and the heart and soul of M.O.R.

Do your research before you make such an ignorant comment.

Suicide Squeeze is an amazing label and this record is just another reason why...
