Gary Lucas' Gods and Monsters

Mark Dery, Guitar Player, September 1990

"THE MUSICAL landscape is completely moribund," says Gary Lucas. "It's one of the worst periods in memory, worse than the mid '70s. My music is so passionate in comparison to the pablum that's being spat up these days. I want to create waves of sensation by mixing references radically and playing passionately. I want to take the audience on a trip, then bring it back. I want to sear people with my guitar."
