New York's experimental combo Uncle Wiggly
was born as a side project of
James Kavoussi and Mike Anzalone, who joined forces with
guitarist William Berger.
The cassette He Went There (Nur Sch, 1990) introduced a trio of
zany imitators of the Beach Boys and the Beatles, but
Across The Room (Shimmy Disc, 1991)
revelead a glorious psychedelic vein (Big Epic, Julie In The
Greenhouse) with post-rock overtones (Express, Hope So)
that peaked on
There Was An Elk (Shimmy Disc, 1993), a 70-minute cauldron clearly
influenced by Mark Kramer's albums,
with whimsical ditties such as
Small Factory, Elephant Fly, Fruit Stand.
The EP Non-Stuff (Hemiola, 1995) is an unusually serious record for them.
Jump Back Baby (Teen Beat, 1996) sounds almost mainstream.
The all-instrumental album Farfetchedness (Dark Beloved Cloud, 1999)
brings them back to their experimental roots with a set of 20 demented
compositions that span all sorts of styles.
World Of Dreams is another project by William Berger.
Who is Yadoosh (Dark Beloved Cloud, 1999) sounds like a tribute to
the giants of German rock.
