The highly prolific Dan Melchior is back again with a new album – this time with the Dan Melchior Band. The band consists of Dan (obviously), Adam Charles Cooper and Pat Ganely, both formerly of the Taiwan Housing Project. Negative Freedom once again proves Dan to be a treasure who continues to musically and lyrically evolve in the most twisted way. His garage/blues tendencies of his early output have all but completely given way to weirdo/outsider post-punk damage, though this record still rocks…sorta the same way The Fall rocked. With as many records as Dan Melchior has already unleashed on the world you may ask yourself “do I really need another one of his albums?” .The rhythm section on this recording consists of two former members of Taiwan Housing Project (Adam Charles Cooper on bass and Pat Ganley on drums). They manage to lay down a solid but decidedly streamlined groove that perfectly compliments the songs. “This Is One” utilizes a re-discovered drum track laid down by the legendary Letha Rodman Melchior to great effect.
