Gongzilla — Suffer
(LoLo LOLO 003-2, 1995, CD)

by Alain Lachapelle, Published 1995-11-01

Suffer Cover art

First of all, Gongzilla's Suffer isn't the non-stop smokin' and jammin' album some people think it is. Rather, it's well balanced, with both excellent guitar work (by Bon Lozaga and Allan Holdsworth) and melodic and mellow vibes/marimba excursions by Benoit Moerlen. This said, it is a sensible fusion album, the jazz-rock legacy of Pierre Moerlen's Gong (in fact, the atmosphere is a lot like Gong's Gazeuse!) featuring Hansford Rowe on bass and Bobby Thomas on tasteful percussion. As with the Project Lo disc, we sense the musicians having fun playing together. This is yet another album by this fruitful and creative bunch of musicians.
