I get a lot of CDs that come across my desk and rarely does one grab my attention like this new gem of a masterpiece called Bonedome. Thinktankubator is twelve songs of pure genius. Allan Hayslip is the mastermind behind Bonedome but has a horde of talent supporting him including Gerald Iragorri on drums, Edward McMahon on guitars and a slew of other flair that makes up this unique machine called Bonedome.
Thinktankubator is one of those CDs best listened to or experienced and is nearly impossible to describe accurately. One thing is noticeable is Hayslip’s vocals which are reminiscent of David Bowie with a good mix of Michael Knott (L.S.U. & The Aunt Betties). The lyrical content is a mixture of dark humor and angst. This is most noticeable in songs like “Girl One”, “Eraser” and “Custody Lullabye”. It is a CD that has schizophrenia as one moment it is making you laugh and the next lulls you into the darkness of the night. It is truly an emotional CD.
Overall Bonedome’s Thinktankubator is an independent CD that is worthy of checking out. If you are a fan of Michael Knott, David Bowie, Love and Rockets, Elvis Costello… Ah heck if you like music that is reminiscent of the 90’s alternative music movement then this is one to give a listen.
