Cowboys from Hell: Big Fish

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Ascoltando questo Big Fish del trio Cowboys from Hell potrebbe venire in mente una parodia del titolo di uno dei celebri libri di Ian Fleming dedicati alla saga di James Bond: "Dalla Svizzera con Furore". Infatti i tre ragazzi che compongono il gruppo cercano di sbriciolare le regole convenzionali associate ad un trio con sax, basso e batteria.

Lo fanno ricorrendo ad un uso massiccio dell'elettronica che consente loro di alterare anche pesantemente le timbriche degli strumenti utilizzati. Lo fanno anche mettendo in gioco le regole delle composizioni. Infatti le loro scorribande sono incursioni adrenaliche sparate senza remore che ti arrivano sul viso senza alcun avviso premonitore.

La musica è piena di colori, piena di energia, libera da sistemi di ancoraggi. Se ne vola libera nelle vallate montane, cercando una sorta di catarsi che permetta a questi cowboy moderni di portare al pascolo le loro mucche, senza rischi di essere intercettate dalla finanza.
