Attention Deficit Discography of CDs


Attention Deficit Attention Deficit CD (1998)
CD $20.25 Buy It  Details
Attention Deficit discography Attention Deficit is another progressive supergroup that records for the Magna Carta label (i.e., Liquid Tension Experiment, Explorers Club, etc.). Comprised of new age bassist Michael Manring, ex-Primus drummer Tim Alexander, and ex-Testament guitarist (and one-time student of Joe Satriani) Alex Skolnick, Attention Deficit is more about atmospheric songwriting than technical shredding. For those who have lost track of Skolnick since his days with thrash metallists Testament, his playing with Attention Deficit is more akin to King Crimson's Fripp and Belew than Metallica's Hetfield and Hammett. He is also quite an accomplished acoustic guitar player -- most of the rhythm guitar tracks on Attention Deficit are acoustic-based. Highlights include the bouncy "Scapula," the vast sound of album opener "ATM," and the hard rocker "Febrile." Although the combination of these three instrumentalists may sound peculiar on paper, they somehow make it all work extremely well. ~ Greg Prato Audio Mixers: Tim "Herb" Alexander ; Alex Skolnick; Michael Manring; Tony Mills.

Attention Deficit songs The success of Attention Deficit's debut recording shouldn't have been very surprising considering that this trio worked so well together on Michael Manring's excellent Thonk. Manring, guitarist Alex Skolnick, and drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander have managed to create an original and instantly recognizable sound. The set is fine balance of introspective pieces, funky jams, and high-octane numbers such as "My Fellow Astronauts" and "Nightmare on 48th Street." While Skolnick has managed to completely reinvent himself on the guitar, both Manring and Alexander continue to push their skills into unexplored areas. Manring, a former student of Jaco Pastorius, has rightfully taken his place as the premier voice on the bass with a style unto himself. The influence of Frank Zappa is prevalent throughout and is ultimately what makes this band work so well, namely, incredible musicianship sprinkled with just the right amount of absurdity and humor. ~ Robert Taylor Personnel: Alex Skolnick (guitar). Audio Mixers: Alex Skolnick; Michael Manring; Ralph Patlan. Recording information: Prairie Sun Recording. Photographer: Steve Jennings. Attention Deficit: Alex Skolnick (guitar); Michael Manring (bass); Tim Alexander (drums). Engineers: Ralph Patlan, Tim Alexander, Michael Manring.

Attention Deficit CD discography This is a continuous in-the-mix CD compiled and mixed by Mark Gage. To most listeners, it might not sound like the best idea in the world to combine the production skills of techno/ambient wunderkind Mark Gage (aka Vapourspace) with tracks from the catalog of the prog rock Magna Carta label. In fact, neither Gage nor label head Peter Morticelli was quite sure how to approach the idea either, at first. But when they finally did, the results were for the most part quite impressive. Gage takes guitar demigod Steve Morse's "Led On" through a gauntlet of Indian percussion and harsh synthesized semi-quavers, and adds techno grit and a rush of adrenalin to the mid-tempo funk groove of Attention Deficit's "Girl From Enchilada." "Dark Corners" by Bozzio Levin Stevens ...
