ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The third album from the Colossal Head project. "Good Time Gulley" is an album of rich texture and styles, ranging from the 70's style funk of the opening track "Temptation" to the Appalachian-stomp-come-Moog of the "Better get your bullets" to the Latin-based drive of "Ooh Ooh".

The album title and cover are based upon the pedal steel player for the group Pat "Pootie" Gulley who began his service for the Navy shortly after the recordings were done. As of this release, he is currently the only pedal steel player for the United States military.

The genre of the album, let alone the Colossal Head band, is a troublesome item to pin down. Having difficulty describing the band and its genre, Micah Barnes (the creator and writer for Colossal Head) coined a simple term to somewhat encapsulate the sound: Folkadelic Funkytonk. The instrumentation on Good Time Gulley has the standard instrument trappings of most pop albums of today but is focused more on the less standard ones: pedal steel, kazoo, cavaquinho, banjo, piano, and such. But more than that, Colossal Head makes use of the opportunity to blend them in an even less traditional manner, contrasting the overtly synthetic oscillations of a Moog Rogue with the harrowingly visceral and organic sound of a banjo. Or similarly floating between wildly contrasting genres from song to song to afford the listener and opportunity to wax and wane on multiple levels. Whereas most albums are structured to rise and fall based on the tempo of the song, Good Time Gulley presents you with completely different instrumentation, genre, meter, and subject matter as well. All this while somehow weaving a thread of cohesion through the entirety of the album. It is difficult to say that "if you like a given band, then you'll like Colossal Head" because it is such a song-by-song comparison to make.

Of the few terms that might apply quite broadly to the album, ...well, it's fun.
