I first heard of Dr Octogon on a James Lavelle album called Cram Live 2, which is also worth a mention. Blue Flowers was on, so I tracked down this album. I recon i've listened to it about 10,000 times, and for those who thought it was pants, well you haven't a clue. The lyrics border on amazing, if you actually listen to the words, it is possibly incredible what he speaks. I think perhaps someone should look inside his head!
But anyway, i've now got every Dr Octogon, Kool Keith, Dan the Automator and all the others that feature this chap. Buy it!
His apprentice in crime Dan the Automator destroys the ethics of producing and builds them up again. DJ Q-berts slices the traks with magical, intrevenous fingers to produce magnificent cuts. I also like this album because Dr octagon has a erotic side to him. He puts his testorone driven urges to paper in delicious sentences. "Girl Let Me Touch You" is one of the best songs on the album because of this.
Dr Octagon has many sides to him; he can insult lesser emcees like in "Real Raw", he can create the master gene like in "No Awareness", he can change into halfsharkalligatorhalfman as in" Halfsharkalligatorhalfman" or he can simply have fun in "Dr octagon" and "Wild and Crazy".
I think thats how he sees rap, as fun and it is. It can be anything any artist good enuf wants it to be. Dr octagon to me is an embellishment of 3 musical malvelolences. Kool Keith is the gothic yet comical skull, Dan the Automator is the white gloves that Keith uses to probe and morph songs into twisted melodies.... Read more ›
