Big Walnuts Yonder – Sponge Bath – Audio

Last decade the idea of the US collaborative conceptual-rock idea Big Walnuts Yonder came to mind and on the 5th of May the début eponymous LP will be released.

Sometimes time is worth the wait as the quartet, centred around Mike Watt better known as part of Minutemen and from Tera Melos, Nick Reinhart, found time and inspiration to follow-up with the thought.

Sponge Bath, the second of the ten tracks, minds of Captain Beefheart as the unconstrained iteration spirals out of the speakers akin to vegetable peelings discard, but rather than throwing it all to waste the resultant constructs forms in to a soup the listener enjoys for its very randomness that coalesces in to tasty sustenance.

Rampancy At Midnight

The duo of Juston and Michael from Lexington (Kentucky) in the USA combine to form the character-rock band Rampancy At Midnight.

An outfit bristling with ideas and visions Rampancy At Midnight avoid disappearing into the vortex of their own imagination by capturing flashing images which they transpose to aural depictions. Perhaps indicative of the world, around although unified as one. they work in silos which are finally melded together into a cohesive consistency that rest within reach of the audience.




Like a Dali collection each piece indicative of its own story, in collection the concept becomes more readily understandable and appreciated as a whole. After meeting a few years ago Juston and Michael gradually slipped apart to pursue their own avenues of creativity prior to reconnecting last year.

The back-drop to their first release reminds me, as it will those readers of longer stay with the German band Rigna Folk, first featured back in 2012 and still feature regularly with chapter updates, who base their premise on capturing the story-line of a central character plot, so to do Rampancy At Midnight.

Their début release Late Is The Hour (available on bandcamp) foretells of the preamble to a dark science fiction novel.
