Lajamanu (AMBIENT SOUND AND SONG)

In cart Not available Out of stock

"Lajamanu" produced by Joe Hastings. A record entitled "Ambient Sound and Song" by a three piece ensemble named "Lajamanu". (2004)

From minimalist to all encompassing waves of frequencies-tension and release comes, "Lajamanu" an ambient escapade of a didgeridoo, percussion and guiatr texture. This album features Shivaji (didgeridoo), Zach Michels (percussion) and Joe Hastings (guitar). Recorded live in the studio by Mike Wisti at Albatross studios in Minneapolis. For a live trio, this album sounds like a school of blue whales rumbling through the ocean floor. Track one starts out with a tease flow, "Lajamanu" into a myriad of liquid rumbles known as "Wamambool" full streams of consciousness with overt expression.

This recording is an approach in progression, instrumentation, experimentation and healing vibrations. All songs on this disc were not pre-cognitioned, meaning that there was no communique between the players about anything relating to the music prior to the recording, the music is completely improvised. This is a classic album for you space-out-didgeridoo-electric guitar-world-drum-kind of humans! Is it space people, rockers, or is it the Lajamanu (ambient sound and song)? 7 Tracks Total run time 48:14

vintage twentytwohundred (2200)

In cart Not available Out of stock

Produced by Joe Hastings (1997) A Punk-Blues-Space-rock quartet from Minneapolis who called themselves "2200". Joe Hastings (Guitar, vocals), Mark McCaghy (Lead vocals). An evolutionary concept album recorded live that starts with 40's-50's earliest electric blues songs such as, T-Bone Walker's "T-Bone Shuffle" and "Stormy Monday", Jimmy Reed's "Baby what you want me to do", then evolving into early rock-n-roll with the Beatles, "I Saw Her Standing There", Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven", then Ray Charles's, "Baby let me hold your hand", then an original crazy guitar John Lee Hooker style stomp rocker entitled, "Hooker", an instrumental live version! You thought that was all? No way! The album then explodes into one of the darkest deepest oceanic sounding waves of ambient space that is 17 minutes of full-on frontal space-out! Leading the way into "Extraterrestrial Highway"! The first four tracks are recorded live at the 400 bar (opening for R.L. Burnside) and are relatively smooth and vintage sounding, then a gusher of distorted bliss (not for the faint hearted) recorded at Biscuits and Blues in march of 1997 and is some of the highest energy sounding punk blues to come outta' Minneapolis period! (TOTAL RUN TIME 42:52; 7 TRACKS)

1997-2005 - Guitarzan Vs. Bazzilla featuring Drumasaurus Rex

 (Taken from the now defunct www.guitarzanrocks.com website)

The band, "Guitarzan Vs. Bazzilla featuring Drumasaurus Rex", (G. V. B. F. D. R.) started
in 1997 A.D. when Joe Hastings (H3k AKA Guitarzan) from Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. met
Rich Casey (Bazzilla) at Winona State University in a small terran town called Winona,
Minnesota.  Rich, fresh from Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. and eager to stomp, took on the ego
monster known as Guitarzan! The two monsters then battled their way into Minneapolis
rock-n-roll city!  Where they summoned from a Draconian media installation known as the
"newspaper" Zach Michels (Drumasaurus Rex!)  Forming one of the greatest hybrid rock bands since "Menudo"!

The band prefers not to be called "alien", or "extraterrestrial", but rather, "hu-brid" as they
hail from different sides of this system of stars in this quadrant of 3-D. Bazzilla from Zeta-reticuli,
Drumasaurus from Alpha-Draconis. Guitarzan having a mix of Pleiadian, Lyran, and Dogstar.
The band is highly free-form, drawing from present environmental energy to fuel the
frequencies that are presented. The band also has many composition's recorded,
(450 hours, over 150 cd's of individual sound frequency) the band
has released less than 1% of what is recorded).
The band typically produces (not necessarily releases) about two or three full production CD's,
either full Length albums, 2 song singles or CD-EPs (5-6 songs) a YEAR! 


The first CD (2-song DEMO) from GUITARZAN VS. BAZZILLA
featuring DRUMASAURUS REX! entitled, "You and You and You/Blink". (2001)

"You and You and You/Blink" Single



Tracks:
1. You and You and You (2:40)
2. Blink (3:50)

The first CD (2-song DEMO) from GUITARZAN VS. BAZZILLA
featuring DRUMASAURUS REX! entitled, "You and You and You/Blink".
A pulling together of a crazy-way-fast-chaotic-lo-fi-rock-n-roll version of
"You and you and you" complete with samples and flow from song to song.

Produced by Joe Hastings and recorded at Albatross Studios in Minneapolis,
Minnesota initially for the "Beerbug from Chicken Katsu Records", it turned
out to be another song that went on the "Kintama Boxers Compilation" on
Chicken Katsu records Okinawa, Japan. It is coupled with an attacking
version of "Blink" -one of the band's ol' standbys (rarely played now)
-an opening guitar scrape riff that sets up a barrage of guitar swirl Fender twin style!

 

The second CD (2-song DEMO) from GUITARZAN VS BAZZILLA
featuring DRUMSAURUS REX! entitled, "Let's Play Twister w/Hooker". (2001)

"Let's Play Twister w/Hooker!" Single



 Tracks:
1. Let's Play Twister (2:54)
2. Hooker (4:08)

A set of Louisiana type backwoods snarl complete with distorted vocals,
a smell of the bayou eminating foul stench, and one of the craziest guitar
boogie-woogie shuffles to hit digital conversion! Let's Play twister a
mid-tempo rocker with a full-on stomp and alligator growls! Then comes
the ZZ-meets-John Lee-meets-Spaceman 3 jam in all its distorted glory!
(Both tunes are rarely played live).

Produced by Joe Hastings and recorded at Albatross Studios in Minneapolis,
Minnesota. engineered by Mike Wisti.
 

The third single CD (2-song DEMO) entitled, "Permanent Access,
Let's get away". (2002)



Tracks:
1. Permanent Access (2:15)
2. Let's get away (3:12)

A cyber rock into garage rock set of tunes that
are out of this world! The song, "Permanent Access opens with a
blistering bass intro then another bass overdub comes in playing the
same line in unison-the unfolds into an eruptive instrumental played
at almost every "GUITARZAN" show! The second song, "I wanna
get away", is a bonafide garage rocker complete with distorted guitars
and a little bit of f**k this attitude!

Produced by Joe Hastings and recorded at Mother of all Music in
Minneapolis, Minnesota. Engineered by Brian Herb, John Brown, and Joe Holland.
 

The fourth single from "Guitarzan Vs. Bazzilla featuring Drumasaurus Rex"
"Speed of light" CD4 Single with three bonus tracks! (2002)




Tracks:
1. "Speed of light/*Lets Get Away/*Permanent Access/*Friend".

One rock-roll song that keeps
hittin' hard, "Speed of light", a fancy and light tribute to travel and travel-
ling with style. The song is the latest form of Guitarzan Vs. Bazzilla
frequency evolution. This song, coupled with a myriad of other rockers-
Tracks:
1. Speed of Light (3:17)
2. I wanna get away (2:51)
3. Permanent Access (2:15)
4. Friend (4:08)
 

The first full length, entitled, "Extraterrestrial Highway", this album is
a garage-weird-rock-space-out and sometimes ambient collection of
songs and flow recordings. Released Thursday, October 31st, 2002.



Tracks:
1. Ghosts in the sky? (:43)
2. You and you and you (part I) (2:24)
3. Friend (4:08)

13. Extraterrestrial Highway! (5:20)
14. You and you and you (part II) (2:40)
15. Rumble (3:50)
16. Blue (5:08)

The mood of the album flows from drive-in theater type flash, straight out stompy-rock,
and space-music that sets up many differing sounds and Terran type ambience that
brings genre-bending to an extreme -all with a lo-fi feel! This is an album for party
transit. The album takes you on a journey to the southwestern United States outside
Rachel, Nevada, where on Highway 375 (a.k.a. the Extra-terrestrial highway),
traveling from Rachel appr. 35 miles along Highway 375 you are approaching
Nellis Air Force base where there is one of many Terran bases set up for
Extraterrestrial "tourism". Produced by Joe Hastings and recorded at Albatross
studios by MikeWisti in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Evolute! Productions
(mobile unit), Amsterdam, Netherlands. There are 17 tracks (16 listed) all of them
add a different mood ring to the already incense smell of the inside of your transit
vehicle or craft. The album has more rock and roll stompers than it does space-outs,
so listen carefully, drive safe, and don't trip and drive!

9. Restricted Access (1:36)


The second full length release entitled "Zetarock", the band starts to
venture way out! The mostly instrumental, ambient, space rock-n-
roll of the releases, as it opens with a song called "Permanent Access",
it brings out the questions, "What level of manipulation is television bringing
to Terran consciousness?", also, "Did the United States of America use
television programming to win the cold war in the space-race?

Whatever the answer may be, the flow shifts immediately to DJ Shadow
type middle groove traveling in andoutta flows and textures resulting in a
type of journey that is inward rather than outward into the material world.
This album is a full concept continuation of "Extraterrestrial Highway",
begging the question, "Is there any other life forms not on this earth?,
"If they (aliens) exist how come I haven't seen one?", "Why is this album
so f**kin' cool?"  All of these and many other questions are answered
right here in this...Zetarock.

Beerbug, and a cast of literally 50+ people put in some serious time and
delivered some sweet punches to anyone who cares for some noise pop
love and punishment! www.chickenkatsu.com

show along with the band being named "THE STREETS OF ACID".  
(Basically GVBFDR with Rob Dewey on keys/organ/laptop)

6. Kiribati (8:23)
7. SAHASRA (18:30)

From minimalist to all encompassing waves of frequencies-tension
and release comes, "Lajamanu" an ambient escapade of Shivaji, a Yogan
didgeridoo entity vs. Guitarzan with Drumasaurus Rex! This is a full and
rich sounding album, like a school of blue whales rumbling through the
ocean floor. Track one starts out with a tease flow, "Lajamanu" into
a myriad of liquid rumbles known as "Wamambool" full streams of
consciousness with overt expression.

This recording is an approach in progression, instrumentation,
experimentation and healing vibrations. All songs on this disc were
not pre-cognitioned, meaning that there was no communique'between the
players about anything relating to the music prior to the recording, the
music is totally improvised!  This is a classic album for you space-out-
didgeridoo-electric guitar-world-drum-kind of human!  Is it space
people, rockers, or is it the Lajamanu (ambient sound and song)?

The album has not yet been released and is undergoing the usual
considerations to be produced and available soon!

inner sound ambience of any space craft! The album is a double disc set
complete with a lush and velvety all-encompassing space music for space
people.
 

One of Joe Hastings' first full length albums entitled, "vintage 2200".  (1996)



Tracks:
1. Stormy Monday (8:24)
2. T-bone Shuffle (3:00)
3. Baby what you want me to do? (3:22)
4. I saw her standing there (3:23)
5. Roll over Beethoven (2:37)
6. Baby let me hold your hand (11:01)
7. Hooker (24:36)

The album is critcally acclaimed and is a collectors item. It is a punk blues
distorted rock-n-roll album not for the light hearted music fan.
This is an absolutely amazing guitar album for people who like ear-blistering
hollow-body guitar work with a subtle delicacy that only a few gui-terrorists
can pull-off!

An evolutionary concept album in that starts with 40's-50's earliest
electric blues songs such as, T-Bone Walker's "T-Bone Shuffle" and
"Stormy Monday", Jimmy Reed's "Baby what you want me to do",
(still in Guitarzan's live set), then evolving into early rock-n-roll with
the Beatles, "I Saw Her Standing There",  Chuck Berry's
"Roll Over Beethoven", then Ray Charles's ", Baby let me hold your hand",
then one of the craziest guitar John Lee Hooker's stomp rocker's
entitled, "Hooker", an instrumental live version! You thought that was all?
No way! The album then explodes into one of the darkest deepest oceanic
sounding waves of ambient space that is 17 minutes of full-on frontal
space-out! Leading the way into "Extraterrestrial Highway"! The first four
tracks are recorded live at the 400 bar (opening for R.L. Burnside) and are
relatively smooth and vintage sounding, then cums a gusher of distorted bliss
(not for the faint hearted) and is some of the highest energy sounding rock
punk blues to come outta Minneapolis
since the Jets!

 

Oddjobs "Drums"
This album features Hastings 3000 a.k.a. Guitarzan on one track
entitled, "Shore".  (2003)



The band ODDJOBS is a rap outfit primarily based out of Brooklyn, New York,
when Djs employs real musicians into their sound, in turn jumping steps
and boundaries with their blue-collar american values versus ideallic progression
with a touch of irony and revolution.
