Nutsak


Nutsak is indeed a mixed bag of nuts: a francophone, an anglophone, an arab and a jew coming together to make music like a microcosm of a utopian society. Founding members Sam Shalabi (The Shalabi Effect, Detention, David Kristian/Shalabi/St. Onge) and Chris Burns (American Devices, GlassBurns, Terminal Sunglasses, Ratchet Orchestra) played their first Nutsak show in 1996 yet have never recorded an album under this name until now.

Nutsak is indeed a mixed bag of nuts: a francophone, an anglophone, an arab and a jew coming together to make music like a microcosm of a utopian society. Founding members Sam Shalabi (The Shalabi Effect, Detention, David Kristian/Shalabi/St. Onge) and Chris Burns (American Devices, GlassBurns, Terminal Sunglasses, Ratchet Orchestra) played their first Nutsak show in 1996 yet have never recorded an album under this name until now. Their recording debut comes in the shape of a two-song 7" single and is also available on all your favorite download sites. The band's wide variety of original songs dip into the realms of be-bop, klezmer, punk, jazz, balladry, metal, country, blues, Motown, classic rock, improv, surf, and noise but always come out in the distinctive Nutsak style.

The full length album "Failed Musician" is due out in early 2009 and was recorded by Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes with the artwork designed by drummer / cartoonist Howard Chackowicz. The album will be available on CD, LP and of course download formats. The debut single contains two original compositions that illustrate the band's more balls out rockin' qualities. The A-side, "You Are Going to Prison", is a Sam Shalabi instrumental that is fairly indicative of much of the Nutsak sound: a highly energetic, frantic, kinetic and somewhat manic number that has the players all biting into it with wild abandonment while keeping to a tight arrangement that includes a completely improvised free section thrown in for good measure. The B-side is the Chris Burns penned "Last Train to Nutsak, New Jersey".

While its title pays hommage to The Monkees, the music is more of a wink to Motorhead, particularly in the bridge where Shalabi lets loose some unbelievably scorching solos. It is difficult to resist the invitation of all four Nutsak members calling out "Get on board"! Read more on Last.fm.
