Frank Michael Rizzo – Time Is Your Answer b/w Honey Road

After finding two Rizzo acetates in some random box at WFMU, a certain psych mafioso told me he believed Rizzo had access to a lathe and was cutting custom oddities throughout the 70s. Whatever the case, Rizzo captures the perfect basemental weirdness permeating the American underground (think Vyto B, Higney, Stone Harbour, Heitkotter et al.) “Time Is Your Answer” starts out fairly pedestrian until the Bixby chords start ringing and Rizzo dives deep into reverberated guitar territory with nasally belching and weird synth effects hovering behind the mess. When the drums kick in, “Honey Road” reaches all kinds of heights (philosophical AOR, creative bellowing, double-down wastoid, etc.) and leads me to believe he would have cut a killer soft-rock LP. There is another acetate I found that I will post later. Mr. Rizzo – who are you?
