New Artist Radio Music Community / News on the go:

Madmonk has recently written reviews for the likes of Robert Cray, Ray Charles, Neil Young and The Scorpions. He also writes for 'Sound the Sirens' magazine.

(Madmonk’s CD Reviews December 11, 2005)

Joseph Malgeri / Back In Time

Joseph is a musician living in New Jersey and his low budget press kit (an index card) states that he is influenced by the late Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and the very much alive Pink Floyd. Once again, I am way behind in getting to his submission, a self produced CD, which he amusingly states is on Fictitious Records; so he gets points for having a sense of humor.

Back In Time begins with the very Zappa influenced “I’m Following You”, which though suffering ever so slightly, due to the drum machine sound, is a great track featuring an interesting fuzzed out bass solo and a ripping guitar solo. Like Mr. Zappa, Joseph enjoys the distorted Wah Wah peddle sound on his axe. On “Yes, We All Have To Reap What We So” the artist plays a really tip-top dual lead passage that reminded me of Frank’s “Peaches and Regalia” on sedatives.

Joseph plays all the instruments on the CD excluding the flute parts (by Gary Mazza) which add some nice color in the vein of John Mayall and Keef Hartley. Using home studio gear but sounding pretty clean, the artist conveys that he is having a blast playing his quirky material. In addition to instrumentation, Malgeri has inserted messages recorded from his answering machine, adding to the tongue and cheek approach to the material. On “The Customer’s Always Right” he lampoons doing business in corporate America with heavy guitar riffs and glib lyrics.

In today’s music market, it is refreshing to hear an artist who marches to the beat of his own whacky drummer. Joseph Malgeri is way out of the mainstream but still hits the mark with his satirical progressive rock that tips its hat to seventies avant garde rockers Captain Beefheart and the aforementioned Frank Zappa. He ain’t no pop singer but he is a creative musician doing something worth checking out.

Madmonk Overall Grade: B+


"Not bad dude, a B+ from a real reviewer!"

"Back In Time" - notes: Futuristic as hell overall, like a Zappaesque cumulative Psych/Garage feel in some instrumentals. I Liked "The Customer's Always Right" lyrics. "I'll give it a high mark because you can't dance to it!" It’s what I imagine Beefheart or The Residents might sound like. Track 13 – "Spanky The Monkey" – a nice twist/reinvention of Zappanastigmatics, and nice 'gee-tar' work too! Track 14 - "Warlords" – best so far, a nice trippy intro, mixing Canterbury sound with El Lay and Gyspy touch. "Warlords" is reminiscent of 60’s psych masterpieces like "Eagle Tragedy" and "Endless Tunnel." At first I thought it was a little too much on the Synthesizers; but there is enough going on so it doesn't get in the way. It gets more haunting as it goes on – excellent! At the start I wondered if I could get through the whole disc; and by the end it left me wanting more. It is in fact a “Whole Trip”. Excellent work – Killer CD – thanks for turning me on. Excellent sitar! – Let me know if you do another CD because I'll certainly want a copy?

Thanks Joe, greatly appreciated, later.

Sometime within the year 2005 the song entitled 'I'm Following You' became the number one song on the Australian Internet Radio Station KAOSFM - World Underground Music Show.


Joe, got the Cream ticket and it looks fine, and your CD.

Yes, listening to it now - only 4 or 5 songs in - I hear Zappa most definitely, a little Leon Redbone, Captain Beefheart, too. You play a mean guitar too. I like it! I hear the Axis Bold As Love too - "are there or are there not flying saucers?"



"The following Minor Details may, or may not be worth mentioning, but..."

'Back In Time' consist of 20 recorded pieces of material, giving it a Total Time length of 79:34. Out of these 20 sections, 15 pieces actually qualify as songs. Meaning that five of these other pieces, a total of 3:06, are best described as follows:

The 1st piece entitled 'Sleeping Miles Away' is actually a :45 second CD introduction. The 6th piece entitled 'Mr. Garooch' is a :21 second 'spoken word' introduction to its following song. The 8th piece entitled 'Ask For Cathy' is an :18 second 'spoken word' introduction to its following song. The 18th piece entitled 'Roy Meets Guru' is an :37 second in-between songs segment. Then last but not least, the final piece number 20 entitled 'Roy Disciplines Guru,' is an 1:05 CD closing outro. In my humble opinion, all five of these pieces belong exactly where they are placed; complimenting the completion of the entire CD project.

Thank you,



Produced, engineered and mixed by - All music, arrangements and lyrics written by (except for the lyrics to 'I Did Not Die' by anonymous, and the lyrics to 'My God and Devil by Alan Jankowski) - All Instruments and Vocals performed by Joe Malgeri, except for the flute by Gary Mazza, the female vocals by Jeanie Malgeri, the sitar taken from a sound effects CD, and 'The Pledge of Allegiance' recited by Michael and Nicholas Mazza.

THE MUSIC IS SOMETHING THAT ALL THE GREATS WOULD BE PROUD OF .I wish Hendricks and Zappa were still here ,they would love JOE. He really rocks.


In a one word short version: "FANTASTIC!"
It is impossible to separate the artist from the CD because he not only wrote 90% of the lyrics and music, he plays the instruments and does the vocals as well! Every song is an original exhibiting genius. I loved it! This Malgeri guy is a true artist with unbelievable talent, he is going places! Buy it, take the time to real hear the lyrics and enjoy the music. You won't be disappointed!


One excellent CD !
If you are tired of the same old stuff where every artist robs from the last one - try this! This is very unique listening, exhibiting fantastic originality. I cannot say which song I liked best, because I loved them all. If JAM were a writer he would be on the order of Poe, but the Hendrix and Zappa influence show through. I am going to order several CDs for gifts to my more discriminate friends


Wonderful - A great CD!
Yes, I heard the Zappa and Hendrix influence with a bit of Clapton thrown in as well. This is an excellent compliation of all their talents yet Malgeri is not drowned by them - he has his own indiivdual talent and it is great. Good luck to him!

A listener of NAR

5 Stars all the way
As they used to do on American Bandstand:

I give it 5 stars for originality
I give it 5 stars for lyrics
I give it 5 stars for music
I give it 5 stars because I really like it

Admirer of Deep Thinking

Wow - this guy is cool! Hendrix and Zappa rule but even they would sit up and take notice.


Too good for main stream
This guy couldn't make it main stream because he's too good and too talented. With all the no-talent crap out there today winning awards it's a pity that true genius rarely is seen at the Grammy Awards.
If you offered ten stars, I would give him all ten!


Dylan Style
He writes lyrics like Bob Dylan. Granted his playing is far superior to Dylan's, but they both share "from the gut sincerity" coming out in the words.


Very different artist, but a REAL artist with talent to spare.


May I carry your guitar case? Please!
I have studied guitar for ten years but even if I had Segovia as a teacher I'd still never be in your league.
And then there's your lyrics - and I can just about write this review - !!! Let's not even discuss your talent for arrangement. You are good, in fact you are fantastic!
