A REVIEW, by ROB MINDERMAN.GORD-X
MARKS THE SPOT. Something's Gotta Give Gord-X
11 selection CD; From Rain-X recording. On a
twilighty city night, somewhere, ... there! in the sky! A
UFO descends and beams down an alien looking
figure, down into a stark alleyway. A strange visage
cooly stares straight ahead with some strange large
guitar, pointin'it right at ya! Watch out! Something's
Gotta Give: Gord-X is here. What is Gord-X you ask?
Is it some kind of new space age fabric? No, it's the
moniker for Gord Eckstein, a well known musician
around the Toronto sceen. He's known to boogie on
bass at Grossman's Tavern, The Matador Dance Club,
and many other clubs in the area. He also performs on
accoustic guitar in smaller venues in the city. Gord-X
is out there.
The 11 songs on this CD are performed mainly by
gord himself, this including bass, guitar, keyboards,
and programing the drum seqences. Some of the solo's
are performed by noted guitar wiz Johnny
Lovesin(tital track) Richard King of Halifax fame and
Phil Emon from the band "BENJIMAN".He penned
all the tunes himself xcept "FOR YOU" and the
beautiful"I WANT YOU BACK" on which he had a
little help from Miss Leeanne Poole.
The songs range from NewOrlins style funk to the
dreamy ballad "THE ISLAND" I liked the tital track
as well as the chunky blues ballad "DRIFTING". For
people who aren't into lyrics there's the spacious
ballad "JACO'S GHOST" penned after Gord heard of
his untimely death in a NewYork speakeasy. Gord-X
is,I find sonicly electric in this, his debut release. We
Xpect his prospectX for the future are X-ellent. End of
review.
