The Aristocrats: Culture Clash (Day 4 of Album: 365 Mkll)

(Connection to previous album: Marco Minnemann is the drummer for The Aristocrats and drummed on Steven Wilson's Hand Cannot Erase)

I didn't get into The Aristocrats until 2015.  This album came out before that and I think it's a better collection of chops.  Maybe not better songwriting but it's more interesting to listen to.  The title track is one of the other songs my foster dog Cleo (blind Boston Terrier) would tilt her head to when I played it.  Just the song 'Culture Clash' and nothing else from the record. All their records are wanky instrumentals.  I mean, really wanky.  There are hooks but a 3 piece of premier musicians make records to think about when listening. 

Guthrie Govan on guitars, Bryan Beller on bass and Marco Minnemann on drums.  They are great live as well.  Really smart and funny.  

Songs: 2.75 Ds

Performance: 4.5 Ds

Influence: 2.75 Ds

Overall: 3.5 Ds
