4.0 out of 5 stars Jono El Grande- Neo Dada LP Review (7.5/10) 24 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
In 2004, Jono El Grande won the Norwegian `Hat User of the Year' award. As amusing as this sounds, it isn't particularly surprising given the man's reputation for eccentric live shows, which usually involve outlandish costumes and often take their cue from Dadaist performance art. And it's Dadaism that's most instructive when approaching his second full-length album, not least because it's titled `Neo Dada.' Because like the movement from which it takes much of its inspiration, `Neo Dada' appears to reject conventionalities such as logic and reason in favour of a wholehearted embrace of irrationality and surrealism. It's a genre-bender of an album, belonging to a tradition stretching back to the likes of Zappa and Beefheart, and it won't be assimilated without a fight.

Beginning with the title track, Jono El Grande (real name Jon Andreas Håtun) and his accompanying band drag us into an often vivacious, sometimes gloomy, and sometimes tragic-comic world of saxophones, keyboards, strings and guitars playing odd-time melodies and riffs in dense, careering compositions. Fortunately, he knows how to direct his sometimes schizophrenic creations (although just as Jung said about Dadaism, they may be too idiotic to be schizophrenic) into satisfying progressions with satisfying endings. This is especially evident on the title track, which after a jumpy tour through claustrophobic violins, tense vibraphone and funereal guitar reaches a hushed, secretive bridge of saxophone that's gradually lifted by a building drum roll into a screeching, staccato finale.

After this relatively uniform number however, all the succeeding pieces become more sprawling and stylistically multifarious. This is hardly a problem in itself, but some may find the genres delved into a little outdated and tasteless.
