On 'The Beauty Of Fake' Chinese guzheng (zither) resonates with
pastoral flutes, Hawaiian guitars and the plangent tones of the
Scandianvian Hardanger fiddle. Listening to the repetitive
pluckings of the opener, 'The Rush', you can't help but think
of Steve Reich's solo guitar trance-out 'Electric
Counterpoint'. Elsewhere you'll hear echoes of Don Cherry's
multicultural visions, the soaring harmonies of 'Rubber
Soul'-era Beatles, and the magical open tunings of folk-rockers
like David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Country music meets raga
meets psychedelic sugar rush. The Last Hurrah!! did it again,
and it feels damn good, fake or not.

Also available: THE BEAUTY OF FAKE (LP).
