Live review
Nov 14, 1990 Bay Gaurdian

The high-brow blowing and monstrous grooves we heard Thursday night came courtesy of President's Breakfrast, as the ultra-hip po' mo' band brought its deconfunktionist take on dance music to the Lab for an all-too-rare appearance.

Led by drummer, composer and sample whiz Click Dark- himself a genre-melding mixture of TV's Gilligan and Funkmeister Dennis Chambers- the seven-piece outfit rocked beats like Tackhead, used dubs like Aswad and played changes like Steve Coleman, all the while throwing ample doses of crickets, bowling alleys and street sounds into the mix.

On "Nastified," keyboardist and Anthony Braxton collaborator Dred Scott created an eerie ambience with sampled cricket sounds, while Dark kicked in with a huge two-and-four backbeat on the snare. Tenor saxist Francis Wong wove out-ish lines throughout the chugging, industrial groove, building to a screaming climax and then -in a truly Ton Waits-ish move - becoming a kind of moaning Illinois Jacquet as the band dramatically ground to a bone-shattering halt.

Throughout its set, the Breakfast, which also boasts the "Big Thumb" of bassist Steve Horowitz, used basic but mighty Funk as a foundation for aural collages that, at their best, were truly mesmerizing.

Probably the most fully realized example of this hallucinogenic groove thoery came on the ending medly, when Dark stepped from behind the drums to assume his alter ego, lounge singer Moe Dark. As Moe, Dark crooned "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" over a crashing melange of twisted guitar noodlings, thudding sample beats and sax lines that alternated between shrieks and melodic lines from the ballad.

The effect was very much as Dark later told me he intended it, sort of like standing on a city street corner, listening to passing cars booming Rap and a nearby Mexican restaraunt blasting Salsa. "With all these sounds in your head," Dark explained, "you walk off the street and into an elevator only to hear Tony Bennett. You can't control it all, so you might as well dig it."

With challenging concepts like these, a blase stage manner and some lofty credentials (last year it was picked for the prestigious New Music America) the band came off as more cerebral than Dark, a longtime Funkster, probably intended. Maybe with the coming release of its new records "Love Posse" and "Doo Process", President's Breakfast will get its "super-low, ultra-heavy, bass-type oscillations" out on the dance floor.
