ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CEREBRAL LUBRICATION is a new Double CD instumental compilation from Toronto bassist CHRIS BOTTOMLEY. Sourced from his previous releases "BRAINFUDGE" & "KNOTTY BITS", this is the party record that gives you funk, reggae, soul and afro/world rhytms for those warm summer nights...

Featuring Crispy B on bass guitar, Richard Underhill on Saxophones, Odel Johnson on Reggae drums, (Mikey Dread, Michael Rose) Ken Myhr on guitar, (Cowboy Junkies) - Bottomley's bass delivers the fatness you need. This collection gives you re-mixes from his CD's; "BRAINFUDGE" & "KNOTTY BITS", some live cuts from the BAMBOO CLUB in Toronto, and some new suprises...all from a decades worth of recording! Hard to believe that all this good music comes from Chris Bottomley - bassist in Toronto, Canada.

"I wonder if Canada really realizes the goldmine they have in bassist Chris Bottomley? This talented multi-instrumentalist has just released a double cd called Cerebral Lubrication which is mind-blowing and rhythmic. The emphasis on Cerebral Lubrication is live jam improvisation with eclectic mixtures of Electronica, Reggae, Fusion, Afro/World music, and plenty of good Funk music.
At first, Cerebral Lubrication was a lot to digest due to the fact that there is so much great music happening, that it took me a while to complete the cd because I kept replaying songs that moved me, like the Afro/World inspired "Brazilian Thunder Throb", and the Reggae tracks "Let's Get Together" and "Belize City Bakin'" are personal favorites. The true essence of Chris Bottomley musicianship and improvisational skills come through on the live recordings ("Chillin'", "Slinky Dub" and "Oh Hey Yeh") from the Bamboo Club.
Cerebral Lubrication is one of the hottest releases by far for 2005. It's funky, with top notch production, and just simply outstanding. Great Job!"

"Rhythmic, electrical, modern jazz perfectly fusioned with sounds of Afro, Funk, Fusion, Reggae and World Music. You feel like a time traveler on a trip to the new dimensions of modern jazz. Chris Bottomley blows up your mind with his Cerebral Lubrication!"
Carl Flisch - RadioCrazy Multi-Channel Internet Radio Service



"To say that Chris Bottomley is inventive is kind of like saying the Titanic had buoyancy issues. Endlessly excellent musical style with some of the loopiest song names since Frank Zappa combine for a truly interesting individual. In fact, I'd go so far as to say there's very few in the business today more qualified to step into Zappa's musical loafers."
Clay Evans - Radio Nosferatu

Here's a hint, musician types. If you want to get into my good books, don't send me a CD of sprawling instrumental fusion jams. Send me a double CD of sprawling instrumental fusion jams!You may think it's too jazzy for you, but if you've ever sat in the dark listening to Pierre Moerlens Gong or possibly even Mickey Harts less irritating releases, then you're going to feel very happy here. Among the many (many) highlights are the djembe driven 'African Head Dub', the lament 'My Heart Beating' and my particular favourite, 'Trouble Makin' Freakazoid'. This set is a pure trip, in the best sense of the word, and something you really ought to experience. An epic, vital and enthralling 2CD set!

What a great double CD. I'm in doubt if I'll leave it at the station or I'll need it at home for those hard and hot summer nights with all of my neighbours listening to this brilliant mixture of rhythms.
There'll be no one song from this CD on our Hit List, because ALL of the songs must be played on a daily basis.

SCAZZOLA GIOVANNI PIETRO - RADIO GOLD POPULAR NETWORK, BARLETTA,


Comments: The new urban African heart-beat. Genuine and inspired road music, much better, superhighway music taking us directly inside the '70s, and you can choose the Jamaican or the Brazilian exit.

Great album.

Bob Winter - 2CCR_FM 90.5, Australia


Definitely need crystal ball to figure who does what on any particular track! Nice funk-groove going on and the creative artwork and even more creative song titles are just brilliant - Random Splatter Effect perfectly describes my less than perfect welding technique! As to lubricating the old grey matter - that it does

It's good trippy music!
Bottomley is a bass player and percussionist with a three pronged fixation on jazz, funk and dub. This two-CD album is a sprawling, spacey collection of jams - some refreshingly alien sounding. It's good trippy music!
