Rezensionen


Von: Udo Gerhards


Mit "The Violence Of Amateurs" liegt das nunmehr sechste (die Live-CD "Yoo-Hoo!!!" mitgezählt) Album des amerikanischen Projekts um Bassist Mike Sary vor. Wobei 'Projekt' vielleicht inzwischen gar nicht mehr passend ist, da sich ein recht fester Stamm an musikalischen Partnern herzukristallisiert haben scheint: Gitarrist Dean Zigoris ist bei allen Songs mit von der Partie, er darf sich sogar bei zweien ("The Secret Life Of Walter Riddle", "Mail Order Quarks") als (Mit-)Komponist eintragen. Auch Drummer Bob Douglas und Keyboarder John Robinson sind die meiste Zeit mit an Bord, ansonsten lassen sich Sary und Zigoris von weiteren Mitstreitern an verschieden Instrumenten ergänzen.

"The Violence Of Amateurs" ist eine Platte geworden, der man anmerkt, dass Sary & Co. das Genre "Progressive Rock" lieben, aber dabei nicht zu ernst nehmen. Pomp & Circumstance, Schwulst, Pathos und Bombast sucht man hier vergebens. Stattdessen nehmen sich "French TV" in ihrer instrumentalen Musik eher den verschmitzten Humor von Canterbury Bands wie "National Health" und "Hatfield And The North" zum Vorbild und schaffen es wie diese, Witz, Komplexität und Jazziges mühelos zu verbinden. In manchen heftig-schrägen Ausflügen liegen vielleicht auch Frank Zappa oder Bands der RIO-Bewegung ("Rock In Opposition") nahe.

Sarys "The Kokonino Stomp" legt gleich grossartig los: fetzige, zerissene, jazzige Linien Linien in einem kleinen Saxophon-Satz, dazu humorig-seltsame Keyboardeinwürfe (Klingel-Sounds, Geister-Uhus), Banjo-Solo und Salon-Piano-Sound,und spätestens nach dem kurzen 'Uga-chaka-uga-chaka'-Urwald-Vokalteil liege ich lachend am Boden. Grandios!

Und mit Zigoris' "The Secret Life Of Walter Riddle" kommt gleich das nächste Highlight: eröffnet mit einem schrägen gepfiffenen Marsch, den man danach tagelang nicht aus dem Gehörgang bekommt, auch auf die Gefahr hin, dass einen die Menschen in der Münchner U-Bahn ob des seltsamen Gepfeifes komisch anstarren... Danach oszilliert der Song zwischen Jazzigem, Hardrock-Sound und Surfmusik, und ich fühle mich wegen der bizarren Mischung an "Mr.Bungle" erinnert, und ich meine das als Kompliment.

"The Odessa Steps Sequence" ist dann die erste Cover-Nummer, im Original ein Song der US-Progger "Volare", deren Schlagzeuger Brian Donahue auch auf zwei Songs von "The Violence Of Amateurs" zu hören ist. Dies ist die von der Komposition her vielleicht am herkömmlichsten proggige und am wenigsten seltsame Nummer der Platte, wenn auch im typischen schlanken Sound der Band dargeboten.

"Mail Order Quarks" gibt sich dann sehr jazzrockiges, leicht-füssig schwebend, im ersten Teil erneut mit Saxophonunterstützung, im zweiten Teil mit Violine. Weiter geht's mit Sarys zweiter Komposition, "Tiger Tea", die inklusive Karibik-Feeling am Anfang in die gleiche seltsame Keule schlägt wie "The Secret Life Of Walter Riddle": schräg, witzig, spacig, jazzig, you name it.

"Joosan Lost/The Fate" ist dann das zweite, mehr als zwanzig Minuten lange Cover, diesmal von einem Stück der schwedischen RIO-Veteranen "Zamla Mammas Manna", das sich aber perfekt in den "French TV"-Soundkosmos hineinpasst: los geht's mit coolem, witzigem Quasi-Tango-Sound, aber nach und nach mündet die Nummer in minutenlangen, heftigsten kollektiven Freiformübungen, bevor der 'Tango'-Teil wieder aufgenommen wird.

Insgesamt ist "The Violence Of Amateurs" ein enorm unterhaltsames Album, dessen durchaus abgefahrene schräge Impros und übel komplexe Teile durch viel Charme und 'Spass-inne-Backen' hervorragend balanciert werden, so dass ich Euch nur empfehlen kann, mal reinzuhören.
