Hundreds of thousands of people have been infatuated and philosophically perplexed by Neal Crosbie's cartoons in Tricycle, the Buddhist Review, and other publications. Now Master Tinkerer Tom Lackner has brought his reins to the parade, bringing a musical analog to Crosbie's poetic and visual world. With their new album, Ghost Brain, Zen Horse Repair rides again for the first time, through territory somewhere between Joshua Tree, Mt. Fuji and right over there. After working on Crosbie's first band album, Zen Horse Repair, multi-instrumentalist Tom Lackner and Crosbie wanted to keep exploring the unique music/poem territory that volunteered itself in that album. Lackner brings his wealth of experience (Flora Purim and Airto, Eddie Harris, Charlie Musselwhite, musical theater, Headless Household, etc. Etc.) to the sonic landscape germinated in Crosbie's koan-like lyrics and hypnotic banjo and guitar riffs. Sometimes they recorded with the frogs, and sometimes with human friends such as Bruce Winter and Glen Philips. As they recorded Ghost Brain, something strange happened....a lot.
