The Science Group

April 1, 2007

Noteworthy recent purchases include Spoors and …A Mere Coincidence by The Science Group (samples at link). Both are very strong, hard-rocking arty-proggy fare that will appeal to fans of member/producer Bob Drake (the group is rounded out by Chris Cutler and the un-google-able [link added 20070917] Stephan Tickmeyer). Of the two, Spoors in the more consistant and instantly likable, and therefore I’ve listened to it more than the other. However, having been keeping track of Bob Drake and Chris Cutler for a while, it hasn’t told me alot that I didn’t already know. …A Mere Coincidence is augmented by Amy Denio and Fred Frith, covers more ground, and is more adventurous. My opinion of it is not yet at equilibrium, but I enjoy it more each time I listen to it. Both are strongly recommended by me, so buy ’em.
