SUPERCREEP


"Supercreep" (Pat's Record Company; 2005)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

 

Supercreep is one of those CDs that I would never buy but, since the boss sent it to me to review, I had to listen. And now I want to tell you to give it a listen. 

"Supercreep" has a Beck flavor to it and not just because all the songs were written and performed by one man, Jody Delli Santi. As you probably know, Beck has some weird stuff interjected into his songs and so does Supercreep. Like Beck, Supercreep also has that street-smart type of lyrics and a rebellious attitude. There's also a folk kind of sound here.

Long gone are the days of the one man band with instruments strapped all around him and a pedal attached to his feet that caused a beat every time he took a step. Supercreep puts guitars, keys, earth sounds, Zamfir flute and electronic beats all together. It may not keep the attention of someone coming off a Slayer binge but the music is very interesting to say the least.

Now days you can put together a studio for about five grand and make whatever music you want. Supercreep notes in the liners that “This record was recorded in my parent’s basement and Rikers Island Studios NJ & LA." Either his parents still support him or they have great acoustics.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
