Bananafish - Boston Bananafish - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Boston Bananafish by Bananafish and it's a cool jam rocker. Opening with What's Been Going On?, Bananafish, led by vocalist, guitarist songwriter Fordham Murdy, (also known as Reverend Freakchild) begins this two cd release with a pop rocker with contemporary rock and country roots. Joined by Dan Simone on keys, Ben Chen and Ry Cavanaugh on bas and Joe Bulkin on drums. Casey And Hayes is a cool rocker with a spry beat. With it's story line flowing and it's hi low vocal Murdy and Simone) blending and piano lead, this is one of my favorites. Belpre at Night is a cool, blues based track with a vocal prominent beginning, developing into a solid guitar led guitar jam. Very cool. An interesting, folk like rework of Lennon and McCartney's With A Little Help From My Friends is pretty creative in itself with only traces of the original melody or arrangement. The second cd of this release contains all instrumental tracks. Planet Garbonzo is a loose rocker with Murdy working with Simone in tandem guitar and keyboard lines around a central rocking theme. Crazy Karma is short but effective. With heavy fuzz on the guitar Murdy lays down a central rock theme with guitar on a tight drum rhythm. Simone answers his call with electric piano ... almost Zappa like. This is an interesting composition over 2 cds with very short and longer concepts.
