Lyle K'ang ~ Before 3003 – Peace and Tranquility

Posted on Sunday, December 02, 2007 @ 00:59:45 EST

Topic: Reviews



Artist: Lyle K'ang



CD: Before 3003 – Peace and Tranquility



Home: Yakima, Washington



Style: Rock



Quote: "If we had more folks like Lyle K’ang, I’m sure we would reach true peace and tranquility long before 3003."



By Dan MacIntosh



I was a little surprised when I compared the CD picture of Lyle K’ang with the contents within. For example, the reggae of “By the Sea” does not match the gray haired man in the raincoat on the front cover. Honestly, I expected middle-of-the-road big band covers, or traditional country at the very least. But K’ang is a philosophical rocker, instead, and a good one, too.



And while he knows how to rock, he doesn’t do so in a thrash-y, punk-y, or bludgeoning heavy metal manner. Instead, he – to quote an Echo & The Bunnymen song title – does it clean. This approach is exemplified by “Morning Glow,” a song directed at someone who left him high & dry, which chugs along with stately electric guitar groove.



“To Know You” shows another side of K’ang’s musical personality. Over acoustic instrumentation and sweet fiddle coloring, he sings a song directed at parents who have lost a child. “Boy I thought you were buried long time ago,” he sings at one point. Unfortunately, memories are harder to bury than bodies.



K’ang has one of those professionally trained voices, which makes everything he sings come off pitch-perfect. And experience in musical theater has prepared him for just about anything. For instance, “By The Sea” is followed by “Darling," which plays out like a one-man doo-wop track.



But songs like the opener, “Immediate Situation," express K’ang’s muse best. K’ang titles his CD Peace and Tranquility, but he finds it hard to be either peaceful or tranquil when the homeless “live under a tree.” After an orchestrated opening, this track goes into a sharp, electric-guitar-led rock feel. Then on “Little Boy Joe” he sings: “Heal the world, you know if I can, laughter is so rare.” It’s as if to say he wishes for a better world and hopes to be part of that utopia, but reality gives him severe doubts about any such peaceful and tranquil future. But to do his part, all of the proceeds from the sale of his single, “Immediate Situation," go to construction funds for the homeless and veterans. Yep, he puts his money right where is mouth is.



It’s likely Lyle K’ang’s image and music won’t exactly seem to match for you either. But if you give this CD a good fighting chance, it’s bound to grow on you. K’ang has his music and his heart in exactly the right place. If we had more folks like Lyle K’ang, I’m sure we would reach true peace and tranquility long before 3003.

Kailua '07 Veterans Party!!
...Lyle K'ang was singing in Kailua, Hawaii - what a voice! His songs which he wrote are spectacular, eclectic, country, blues and stuff you can relate too! I sat through two hours of this beautiful music.

I especially liked his way of standing up and moving through the audience. We had 35-40 people there and he was the hit of the show.

His brother Clifford was also on stage as a stand up comedian. What a laugh...

Thank you for spot lighting your brother Lyle at your party Clifford in Hawaii!!

Our take: Hard to categorize this one. If you remember K'ang, you'll get a bang
"Before 3003: Peace and Tranquility" by Lyle K'ang; Human Tribe Productions

# Genre: Eclectic, with folk, pop and blues elements.

# Distinguishing notes: I first met Lyle K'ang in the late 1960s and early '70s, when he was selected to portray Claude in the then-controversial and innovative love-rock musical, "Hair."

This CD, curiously, is his first; the songs play like fragments of his life, written over the past three decades, with a heavy dose of the hippie movement-suggested folk, rock and blues idiom. K'ang tackles a spectrum of themes and see-saws from reflective to reactive, mostly to better the world. His Island ties are the basis for " 'Til the End," where the shores, skies and more remain a positive memory; "Darling" is a flashback ditty about love found on Maui and the Big Island; "By the Sea" infers that children are our future; "Little Boy Joe" is a dark lament ("stop the killing").

TAXI - REVIEW
'TO KNOW YOU' by Lyle K'ang

"STYLE - the acoustic instrumentation and clarity of sound help sell the emotion here. Especially with the fiddle so predominate, it would probably fall into an alternative country format, or could be considered a more classical 'rock' or Americana sound. With this kind of acoustic arrangement, there is a lot of heart represented here...

MELODY - There is a 'drony' quality to the verse melody that is mesmerizing. Your chorus has power...

STRUCTURE - The vocal ad libs work well as a bridge here. The instrumental work is well done, and the overall effect sets the mood well...

LYRIC - Rhymes well, Unique... there are some intriguing lyrical moments here..."
