A.L. Guillèn (Sefronia, Les Rauchen Verboten, Almayate, etc, etc) està considerado como uno de los mejores, atrevidos y màs personales guitarristas y compositores de España. Con Der Cucamongol cannibalizes your idol (a joyful digestion of Frank Zappa).... nos ofrece dos discos en uno, por un lado una revisiòn muy particular de la obra zappiana y por otro una obra original del propio Guillèn, ya que todas las composiciones, aunque basadas en el cancionero zappiano, tienen identidad propia por sì solas. Una especie de easy-noise repleta de maravillas que retuercen màs si cabe la complejidad del material original del maestro bigotudo y aglutinadas de forma conceptual. Una obra maestra de la mùsica vanguardista contemporànea española.

A.L. Guillèn (Sefronia, Les Rauchen Verboten, Amatria, etc, etc) is considered one of the most skilled, personal and daring Spanish composers and guitar players. With Der Cucamongol cannibalizes your idol (a joyful digestion of Frank Zappa) he has actually delivered not only a very personal view on the Zappa legacy but also a most original work as all tracks, although vaguely based in Zappa tracks, have an identity of their own. We could call it easy-noise music packed with sounds that add further twists to the already complex original FZ material. A true masterwork of Spanish avant-garde contemporary music.


released April 26, 2013
