Dead Christmas Trees

by Screaming Headless Torsos

Musically, this is a powerful drum n' bass vibe. Lyrically, this piece is based on the observation of all the Xmas season hype versus how many tress were discarded December 26th. "Little trees, lonely, cold, in the slush and mud just looked sad to me".

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Iconoclastic and prolific jazz-rock guitarist David ‘Fuze’ Fiuczynski, a jazz player who“doesn’t want to play just jazz”, has been hailed by the world press as an incredibly inventive guitar hero, who continues to deliver with music that is unclassifiable, challenging and invigorating. An innovative musician who has released nine CD’s and a double live DVD, Fuze is best known as the leader of the Screaming Headless Torsos.

In 1994 David – in collaboration with keyboardist John Medeski of Medeski Martin & Wood – woke up the sleeping jazz fusion world with a landmark CD, Lunar Crush, which was chosen by Guitar Player’s 30th Anniversary Edition as a “Disc of Destiny” – in Guitar Player’s estimation, one of the most influential albums of the last thirty years. Fuze’s signature palette of otherworldly guitar sounds and enormous chops received astonished accolades from critics and fans alike and landed him on the cover of Guitar Player as a trailblazer who could “change the way you play!” In 1994 David became the original guitar player in Meshell NdegéOcello’s debut band and is prominently featured on her first two Grammy-nominated CD’s.

Just a year after Lunar Crush, Fuze released another influential album as bandleader and primary writer with his long-time group Screaming Headless Torsos titled “1995”, for Warner/Discovery Records. The Torsos, fronted by vocalist extraordinaire Dean Bowman, were chosen by Musician Magazine as one of the top ten bands of 1996, described as “brilliantly blending jazz know-how with a love for heavy riffs”. Along with percussionist Daniel Sadownick and bassist Fima Ephron, they inspired fans, other musicians, and numbers of cover bands all over the world, and toured Europe, Japan, North America and Canada. The Torsos recorded an excellent 1996 live cd, “Live!!” released in Japan on VideoArtsMusic, and then Dean took a hiatus, during which New York vocalist Freedom Bremner sang with the band. In 2001 David bought back the rights to the first two Screaming Headless Torsos CD’s, “Live!!” and“1995” and released them on his own label, FuzeLicious Morsels. Now, with singer Freedom Bremner at the helm of the vocal chair the Torsos are back and unleashing their new single Dead Christmas Trees for the Holiday season and a new album will be out by the Spring of 2011.
