MUSIC REVIEWS

The Moog Cookbook-Ye Olde Space Bande (Restless)

 

The Moog Cookbook is a side project for former Jellyfish and Imperial Drag member Roger Manning. The band first appeared on the scene in 1995 with a self-titled goof of an album in which it wondered... what if the day's big grunge hits were Kraftwerk instrumentals played on Moog synthesizers?

 

Now, on the followup, the Moog guys take on classic rock -- instead of playing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" it is trying to transform war horses like "Born To Be Wild," "Whole Lotta Love," "More Than A Feeling" and "Rock & Roll All Night."

 

The musicianship is good and the songs can be very good on their own merit. It starts out fun and funny, but, like the first album, the joke gets tired long before the album ends. (12/97)
