The eminent fuckyeahologist and neurogroovtrician Benjamin Tadwater James, currently working upstate at New York’s Institute For Higher Rocking & Righteous Tunage, turned me on to this album with a scandalous wink and a YouTube link. Solid gold brothers, this hunk of wax is solid gold. Passionate without being overblown, heavy without being aggressive, classic without being over played. Shinki Chen (and his records with Speed, Glue, and Shinki, or other bands like Foodbrain) is the realization of an idea that exists deep in the nethers of your mind- a whisper from a heavy ghost. Anyway, the future is a slinky waste of time so sit back, hit that bong like it owes you money, and press play.
