Not-So-Bright Side of the Moon Not-So-Bright Side of the Moon CD (2000) 4 stars
CD $15.09 Buy It  Details
Squirrels music CDs Tearing down the sacred cow that is Pink Floyd are the Squirrels. These satirical footsoldiers include members of Dread Zeppelin (iconoclasts, fronted by an Elvis impersonator, who've made a career recording reggae versions of Led Zeppelin songs) along with various alumni of the Pacific Northwest scene including Skerik of Tuatara and Kurt Bloch of the Fastbacks. Sounding like the Mothers of Invention fronted by "Weird Al" Yankovic with an assist from the Firesign Theatre, the Squirrels do a fine job skewering DARK SIDE OF THE MOON amidst a series of mishaps such as effects breaking down mid-song and participants calling out for missing back-up singers. The only straightforward thing about this MOON is the retention of the original album's track order. Otherwise the Squirrels tap into a myriad of musical genres, including swing ("Breathe"), psychobilly-disco ("Brain Damage"), electro-funk ("Us & Them"), and Motown ("Money"). By the time the Squirrels close out with a whirling dervish/sideshow version of "Eclipse" that overflows with kazoos, they've effectively demystified this classic-rock touchstone. a rollicking, brain-bending, often hilarious reworking of the entire Pink Floyd album "The Dark Side Of The Moon," clear down to the infamous sound effects, packaging & mysterious background mumbling (provided largely in this case by Tortelvis & Ed Zeppe Recording information: Egg Studios, Seattle, WA (08/18/1999-09/02/1999); Ghost Nation Studios, Pasadena (08/18/1999-09/02/1999); Vulcan Research Center, Seattle, WA (08/18/1999-09/02/1999).
