World Tripe Day is celebrated on 24 October, according to the Tripe Marketing Board , because in Samuel Pepys wrote on that day "So home and dined there with my wife upon a most excellent dish of tripes of my own directing.
Abomasum reed tripe is seen less frequently, owing to its glandular tissue content. Tripe refers to cow beef stomach, but includes stomach of any ruminant including cattle, sheep, deer, antelope, giraffes, and their relatives. Tripas, the related Spanish word, also refers to culinary dishes produced from any animal with a stomach. In some cases, other names have been applied to the 'tripe' of other animals. For example, tripe from pigs may be referred to as paunch, pig bag, or hog maw.
Washed tripe is more typically known as dressed tripe. To dress the tripe, the stomachs are cleaned and the fat trimmed off. The task of dressing the tripe is usually carried out by a professional tripe dresser. Dressed tripe was a popular, nutritious and cheap dish for the British working classes from Victorian times until the latter half of the 20th century.
Although running 66 minutes just like the debut Eyestrings outing, "Consumption" musically has not that much in common with its predecessor. Gone is Jazz-Fusion, which was one of the essential components of the music on "Burdened Hands", and generally, the band has made a noticeable turn towards a more accessible sound, which does not become obvious right from the beginning of the album. Quite the contrary, the semi-epic suite Valid for a Week , following the short acoustic guitar intro All Sales Final , is the band's most diverse and profound work to date.
The music is complex and gorgeous simultaneously, structurally multi-layered, stylistically polymorphous - really unique symphonic Art-Rock with elements of Prog-Metal, occasional RIO-like angular maneuvers, some piano and acoustic guitar interludes, excellent theatric vocals and a distinct Gothic sense in places. Good album. This is much more like it, the compositions, the arrangements and overall sound is better for sure and what is important is more intresting in passages.
This time definetly sounds prog to my ears with an eclectic feel to it in some pieces and intresting is that Eyestrings here sounds very Discipline, that combination of Van Der Graaf Generator with King Crimson and some symphonic prog touches here and there, a perfect example is ending track Lifelines. Good ones are instrumental Groove seven, a very nice one with great passages, from guitar and keyboards work at full capacity, ending track is pretty much ok most of the time, has some good instrumental parts quite dark but works for me more then ok specilly the keyboards around min very good sound and arrangements, another good one is Valid For A Week.
So, definetly more serious release then debute and with a clear direction now towards eclectic zone then Burdened hands. Another awful cover art and booklet, damn designer, because the music this time is good.

A far more serious album than the band's stunning debut, but overall the music with repeated listening, Eyestrings "Consumption" is a phenomenal album, perhaps one of the best releases of The quartet is clicking on all cylinders, and not one weak track on this gem, definitely proves that Eyestrings is a band that will a major force to reckon and the band has struck gold two times in a row It takes a few listens.
Can't argue with anyone about that. This is where the band has matured. I thought I had done some very interesting discoveries with this band Eyestrings where comparisons and resemblances were concerned. I would also prefer a fade out or echo, to a synth that just stops playing at the end of a song. It literally cuts off the mood of the song too sudden. Other than that, if you like music with intricate musical themes, dark dissonants and vocal harmonies I know I do!
There is also an abundance of Genesis tribute bands out there. Log on to the Genesis web site, and you will find a whole host of them listed, including this band. In the first instance, Genesis left behind a large legacy of excellent and diverse material.
In the second, they built up a large following, ensuring there is a ready-made audience out there. The fact that they are no longer performing themselves is surely an added incentive.
This is where I have to lay my cards on the table and say that I normally shy away from tribute bands. The other issue I have is with the release of tribute band albums. Given that the Genesis fans that go along to the shows will have the original releases, who are they aimed at?
The quality of the material speaks for itself. This release, appropriately titled Live Volume 1 , represents one half of a typical Genesis In The Cage show, with the intention of releasing the second half at a later date.
It was recorded at three different venues in , from a set that normally includes material taken from Trespass to Duke. A neat idea I thought. The purists amongst you will be pleased to know that the band uses much of the original equipment, which is thoughtfully listed in the CD booklet. Mark Jordan, one on the founding members from , has since left the band, and I believe they are currently looking for a replacement. Hats off to the keyboard player from the outset.
When Genesis played Firth Of Fifth live, they usually skipped the piano overture, launching straight into the song. Not only does Dagg take it on, his playing is faultless, and the song section that follows is almost an anti climax in comparison.
Things pick up again with the instrumental section, and the trumpet-like ARP ProSoloist synth solo is spot on. The keyboardist is fast becoming the star of the show for me.
Patrick Heron does a creditable job with the lyrical and lengthy guitar solo. Trevor Garrard throws in plenty of Gabriel style vocal phrasing, but ends up sounding more like Collins. Overall, a very promising start. One For The Vine is not as successful in my opinion. The guitar, mellotron and percussion intro sounds suitably atmospheric. The Hammond sound is a little uneven, whilst the guitar solo is fluid and fairs better. The slow bridge section is meticulously done, and I like the punchy bass and drums elsewhere in the song, courtesy of Maurice Hendricks and Mark Jordan respectively.
The Mellotron in Fly On A Windshield lacks the weight to do it full justice, but thankfully driving drums and bass save the day. Carpet Crawlers is a worthy effort, especially the lyrical guitar, although it lacks a little atmosphere. The vocals are at their most Gabriel like in Anyway , and the piano phrasing is just right.Nov 20, · Anyone idly perusing the lyric book of Consumption, the second album by Detroit-based Eyestrings, could easily get the impression that main composer Ryan Parmenter is quite a disturbed young man. The immediate imagery of his words are not comfortable ones, although obviously, that says as much about the interpreter as it does the writer.
