Phil's third solo album Love Is A Moron is now very near completion as is the UnTH!nKaB!eS album he has been working on with Roger Grierson, bass player for the seminal Aussie punk band the Thought Criminals and one-time manager for Nick Cave.

The UnTH!nKaB!eS album promises to be a unique blend of the styles and influences of these two important musical figures.

I will post more details as they are revealed.

Having listened to Unthinkables Untitled CD a few times now I gotta say this is an unexpectedly unjoyable cd.

The first 2 and a bit tracks - although great on their own - kinda throw you off guard for the remaining 7 + tracks which are all free-form instrumentals interspersed with sampled dialogue and sounds from movies + video games + almost no lyrics.

These tracks don't resemble anything I've heard before. They are interesting without feeling forced and there's some great music happening between the variously unexpected bits + pieces.

The first 2+ tracks ... Kiss the Dream goodbye is Phil singing in tongues (well almost), followed by "who killed vaudeville?" (would have to be Roger) and lastly "Times a gonna come" - several songs merging together then kicking into gear where the rest of the album takes off.
The Unthinkables is food for your senses - all of'em!

It just sounds SOoooOOO fresh and nothing like anything I own, and my album collection is pretty damn huge and varied.
And I tell ya, there's some killer guitar work on this too.

Not forgetting it's got beats- and loads of them too. There is a certain pulse that runs through this album that I can only describe as being a warm aural entitas furthering the listeners interest and pleasure.
So yeah, it sounds pretty cool to me Smiler

Some beautiful melodies amongst it all too, with the fun part being that you don't know what's coming next, but it ends up kind'a like a pot-luck dinner in a candy store.
It's all fun'n games with a shake and a twist.

I recommend this to anyone with a spare $25 Big Grin

I believe the clip's been put into a "predictions" category. Pretty cool.

You can watch it on www.unthinkables.net


Just watched the clip and enjoyed it very much. Thank you, Electric Elf. I also just listened to his Radio NZ interview with Jeremy Ansell, which was really interesting, too. Thanks for always keeping us up-to-date.

You're welcome. I'm always happy to update people when I can.

Love Is A Moron is still set for release early next year! Can't wait for that one!!!
a nice review for the album of the week...

"Every now and then, something comes along and pokes you in the ribs -- this poked me. The teaming up of Roger Grierson (ex of the Thought Criminals and once major record company bigwig) and Phil Judd (the legendary founder of Split Enz, the Swingers and Schnell Fenster) has created an album that is so much not two old music hacks having another go at pop music. It is more like an expression of the creativity of two music seers who can now (with the aid of new technology) make music that uses all the creative process of composition, and then throws them about in a box, compresses them and lets them free. Oh, they also got drumming help from Joey Kramer (Aerosmith) and my favourite drummer in the world, Keith Le Blanc (Tackhead, Sugarhill Gang etc). This is a wild record."
