Where the Fins Meet the Frets

by Ray Troll & The Ratfish Wranglers

"A musical incarnation of Troll's trademark irreverent, quirky, lively, accessible, detailed and calculated two-dimensional art. . . the styles shift from song to song but are mostly bush-rock-country folk. . . some numbers make relevant nods to blues."

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"Troll and his band take over where the B-52s \'Rock Lobster\' left off in the late 80s/many years ago. Living the artist\'s life in Ketchikan, Alaska for 25 years, Troll has swum far below the currents of modern art and music, and surfaced for air with a net full of images and songs about such underwater oddities as the ratfish, the sex life of the salmon and the legendary Bombastodon. Set to a hypnotic beat that pounds like a fishboat diesel, and backed up by a loose-knit set of friends including a champion fiddle player and siren-like back-up singers, his songs reach out to the spirit of the fisherman in all of us!\"

Peter Marsh- Freshwater News

“Just when you think you have Ketchikan artist-author Ray Troll figured out, he pops another surprise. Like a new CD featuring Troll and the Ratfish Wranglers titled \"Where the Fins Meet the Frets.\" \"Fins\" is largely a musical incarnation of Troll\'s trademark irreverent, quirky, lively, accessible, detailed and calculated two-dimensional art. In some cases, the song titles are directly taken from his poster and T-shirt captions: \"Spawn \'Til You Die,\" \"Ain\'t No Nookie Like Chinookie.\" The musical execution, which includes fiddle, clarinet, brass, sax and didgeridoo, is ... good, as is the production, mastering, mixing and such, all done in Southeast (Alaskan) studios. The styles shift from song to song but are mostly bush-rock-country-folk. Some numbers make relevant nods to blues, Latin pop, rap, swing and even mock-gospel.”
