"Gary Panter is a bad penny. If he were German, the phrase might be, schlechter pfennig, which is much less euphonimous. So its a good thing Gary is no Kraut. But what the fuck is he? A Texan. A famous artist. A writer of songs, poetry and prose. As well as a gifted primitive musician. Thus, in this instance, bad means good, and penny means Renaissance man. Panter first burst into the public gut in the 1970s with his Jimbo strip in Slash magazine, his design work for Ralph Records, and some really goddamn ugly commercial art. A few people were also aware he was a musician, although many who discovered him through his first single - Colahaus - would deny the word actually applies to what he does. After his next record, a collaboration with the Residents entitled Tornader to the Tater, people began to take his roistering a bit more seriously. A Japanese company even let him do a gorgeous bizarro-world country-and-acid LP called Pray for Smurph. That one was so good, people started to realize - hey, he actually is a musician! Moving from L.A to Brooklyn, he eventually fell in with the evil genius, Devin Flynn, who widened Panters aural palette and also to got him playing somewhere besides closets full of pot smoke. The duo cut a dandy album, Go Outside, then managed to corral the wildly talented Ross Goldstein into their conspiracy. The results are this new record, and brother, it is a treat. They create miniature brain-damaged nuggets ranging from fake jazz to sloth psych with a nimble touch thatll make your head squeal with pleasure. Marty Robbins might toss around in his velvet- lined grave when he hears it, but screw him. All four of your corners will bounce like crazy. Guaranteed." -Byron Coley, Victoriaville QC 2011

Artist: DEVIN GARY & ROSS
Title: Honeycomb Of Chakras
Format: Double LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"This trio -- Devin Flynn, Gary Panter and Ross Goldstein -- has delivered one of the most blinding psychedelic listening experiences of the last several anna. Only one of these darlings -- Ross Goldstein -- is known primarily as a musician. Gary Panter is one of our eras premier visual artists, and Devin Flynn is among the ages most berserk animation stars. But they have nonetheless managed to blast their way into the very center of a psych-specific cosmos that will make your fingers feel like sausages and your ears wobble as though theyre on stalks. The band has one prior record, the excitingly primitive Four Corners Bounce on Pete Nolans Arbitrary Signs label, but they truly arrive with Honeycomb. Opening with a gorgeous bloot through West Coast Pop Art Experimental Bands "Smell of Incense," they set a high bar, which they manage to hit every leap, no matter how cartoonish Garys voice sounds at times. They also manage to burn through killer versions of Familys "See Through Windows," Henske & Yesters "Farewell Aldebaran" and a bunch of other monster 60s brain ticklers, as well as coughing up their own material in a way that makes you think youve heard it somewhere before. Its a totally whacked effort, ending with a piece of spoken spuzz that demonstrates what it would be like to go to a Star Trek Convention, very high on bad acid, wearing cartoon hand puppets. Completely befuddling! Comes in an eye-toasting full-color gatefold cover, with insanely tricky graphics. You will be so glad you got this album, youll be thanking everyone on your street. For days." - Feeding Tube.
