Song of the Day - May 8, 2006

Oxbow's Love That's Last: A Wholly Hypnographic & Disturbing Work Regarding Oxbow is one disturbing album. Actually, it is CD/DVD collection of live tracks, rare works, and reworked songs that will appeal to their longtime fans. One of the most disturbing but intriguing tracks is "Insylum," which is based on a Willie Dixon tune. Believe it or not, Marianne Faithful is a guest vocalist on "Insylum." This blues drenched number starts out with deranged screaming and a touch of Pink Floyd influenced guitar. A Hammond B3 organ accompanies Marianne Faithful's vocals only to be interrupted by the crazed vocals of Eugene Robinson. The madness continues to multiply unabridged. I can't say I am a fan of all of Oxbow's oeuvre, but this track holds a sinister appeal. Click here to listen.
