Review: This is one of the most bizarre works of music I have ever had the dumb luck to lay ears on. Dread Zeppelin’s No Quarter Pounder (Birdcage Records) is a big ol’, fluffy, grease-drippin’, cheese-meltin’ experiment in rock `n’ roll irreverence with all the fixin’s.
Imagine, if you will, the immortal Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant’s Voice of Rock and Roll with that of Elvis Presley’s during his Las Vegas renaissance. Finally, have Bob Marley wrestling with Weird Al Yankovic as co-producers of the album and you might get an idea of what to expect from this most unusual of musical creations.
In essence, it’s really the answer to all those what if…? questions that have been in the back of your mind. What if Elvis sang Ramble On? What if Zep had been a reggae band? What if Michael and Lisa Marie had a baby? The answers to these questions and others are brought to life in all their quivering, jiggling, bloated glory. Once you hear this music, you may never be the same again.
Since I was unfamiliar with their music, my reaction to this CD included a full range of emotions. First, I was appalled at the frivolous destruction of music I held dear. Then I was intrigued as I said to myself, Hey, I’ll bet that’s exactly what it would have been like if Zep played with The King. Finally, I feel better about myself now that I’ve been able to understand and accept this band. It means that I’m flexible, open-minded, and able to grasp new ideas. Never mind that it also includes a little lack of control or self-discipline. Not only that, but it’s pretty damn funny! How could you not like this stuff? I have often heard that humor is based on truth. After listening to Dread Zeppelin, I can think of no better proof. ~ Amazon
