Product Description

Product Description

On November 8, 9, 11 & 12, 2008, the lebanese post rock band Scrambled Eggs invited six musicians and friends from the local scene to enter the studio with them for four days of experimentation. Various groupings were tried, and everything was recorded. Later on, seven tracks were selected by the band and released the first Johnny Kafta s Kids Menu CD

Review

A few hours ago, I caught myself trying to remember the first time I watched Scrambled Eggs perform live, here in Beirut or elsewhere. I couldn t. Either my memory has started to fail me, or I ve seen Charbel & co perform so often, and under so many guises, that the performances have merged into one gigantic, noisy blur in my head. Which makes these CD releases that much more vital, and evidently indispensable. Both of these albums were released in April 2010, during the 10th edition of theIrtijal Festival. They are the product of a new label, equipped with a fabulously sleazy logo (see below), entitled Johnny Kafta s Kids Menu . The records mark an intense bout of activity for Scrambled Eggs (a trio of Charbel Haber -guitar-, Tony Elieh -bass-, and Malek Rizkallah -drums-), beginning towards the end of 2008, and extending early into 2009. The tracks were completed in Fadi Tabbal s Tunefork Studio. The first of the CD s consists of sessions recorded with the A Trio (Mazen Kerbaj -trumpet-, Sharif Sehnaoui -guitar-, and Raed Yassin -double bass-), comprising two long tracks, epic, dissonant, and sinuous, and a third, shorter, rockier ditty, a tribute of sorts to early Japanese animé Grendizer . Interesting to hear Yassin, Kerbaj and Elieh scream Arabic insults over noisy, distorted accompaniment. And highly recommended. Also recommended is local Lebanese producer Diamond Setter s remix of the title track, Beach Party at Mirna el Chalouhi . You can listen to that one here: http://soundcloud.com/diamond-setter/scrambled-eggs-a-trio-beach-party-at-mirna-el-chalouhi-diamond-setters-whatever-you-want-rework The 2nd album, Scrambled Eggs & Friends , was recorded with various musicians hailing from Beirut s (and Paris ) experimental scenes, namely Joe Ghosn (laptop & electronics), Abdallah Ko (guitar & electronics), Stéphane Rives (saxophone), Fadi Tabbal (guitar), as well as the aforementioned Kerbaj and Sehnaoui. Here, Scrambled Eggs indulge in newfound musical directions and tangents, far from the regular rock format, and marrying with grand ease experimentation, improvisation, and noise. I love the stuff. And the visuals too (these are by Mazen Kerbaj). Ya 3akarit." --Ruptured Online - Ziad Nawfal
