Album Notes
Metrognome does not shy from experimentation. With their ears peeled to vintage prog, jazz, fusion, and cheerful insanity in music, Metrognome has been creating a unique brand of music since the '70s. And yes, the band was christened Metrognome in the early '70s, so this Metrognome probably predates other bands or albums called "Metrognome" that you might bump into. Alan Dean Foster’s science fiction story "The Metrognome" wasn’t even published until 1979…

Consistent band members since the early days have been Rob Morton on keyboards and occasional vocals, Tim Parker on guitars and more vocals, and Lance Kutchins (Lastchancelance at garageband dot com) on guitars, electronics, computer wizardry, and very occasional vocals. The crazy man holding down the drums and percussion for this decade and the last is none other than Rich Niego, a drummer of renown who has his thumb lodged in varying musical pies around town. Still associated from the early days (when he was primarily drums, percussion, and supplied the silliest of the vocals) and contributing some to more recent efforts with a bit of songwriting, vocals, and a mish-mash of instrumentation, is Rich Apple.

With a longtime "collective" air to the band, for "Gnomenculture" Metrognome welcomes such erstwhile Gnomes as Tom Parker, Michael McHam, Julie Kanani O’Rielly, and Scott Hyatt doing the things they all do so well. Everything about the CD Packaging was "performed" (conceptualized, designed, created) by longtime Gnome Rich O'Rielly, who also thought up the band name so very many years ago.

"Gnomenculture" has lots of variety, from textured fusion to adventurous journeys through dense sound landscapes, with stopovers in the realms of the ballads, the rockers, and the just plain silly. Give it a listen. If it's for you, well then you've found it.
