|Intelligent, emotional, brutal, beautiful: "Broken Meats" showcases basic alternative/pop rock developed out of traditional rock, pop, gospel, classical, folk, jazz, blues, world music and avante garde approaches. It is apparent that Chadbourne knows what he wants and knows how to get it across. There is more than a good tune in these songs. Chadbourne exhibits a philosphy behind his music, lyric and arrangements which broadens the meaning of popular music.
Melody, harmonics and atmosphere are cleverly developed so that the music has a familiarity without being trite or cliche. Curiously fresh, Chadbourne's sense of melody is remarkable for its ability to stay with the listener. Lyrics are playful, intelligent and have a brutal emotional and intellecutal honesty, with wit and insight in a humorous sense. The rhythmic sensibilities range from primal pounding to a fluidity that delights and suprises at the least expected moment.
"Broken Meats" is a showcase of the history of pop music presented in a fresh intimate way. Listeners have described the album as "intensely intimate" and as an "exposed inner private world shared without reservation". For more background and a look at the Chadbourne's blog, visit the website listed at the bottom of the page.
Chadbourne's influences spans the entire spectrum. He acknowledges his earliest influences at his website with notable information on Ron Dante, Burton Cummings and the Guess Who and his deep admiration for the works of Morrissey.
"Broken Meats" has produced an incredible 9 number one
Mark's follow-up album "TINGLEGROOVE" has parallelled the success of "Broken Meats". Heavy on trippy rhythms the songs return to Mark's root success and showcase his unique style of atmospheric production, melody and lyricism.
