Sjef Oellers 12-April-2001 Voodoo Boogie

Kräldjursanstalten is one of the few bands that seriously tried to expand on the musical legacy of Captain Beefheart. And indeed, you will hear complex rock with very odd rhythm patterns. The band does not have a singer as threatening as the Captain himself, but on top of the complex rhythmic developments the guitar usually provides a raw punkish energy to their music. So neurotic, frantic and psychotic would be some of the appropriate adjectives to describe Kräldjursanstalten's music. Some fragments also remind me of early Pere Ubu. Difficult, but rewarding music to listen to. Recommended listening for Beefheart fans, especially if you like his late 70's and early 80's albums.
