Review by Emily Genco
October 2011

On their May 2011 release Burst Open, Madison’s own Venice Gas House Trolley delivers an eclectic album that blends spoken word, experimental instrumentals and a sheer fearlessness to conceive traditional instrumentation in new ways.

VGHT benefits from Adam Gregory Pergament’s creativity as an artist. Pergament or Flowpoetry delivers commentary in a structure that ranges from narrative to lists of words. Three-time finalist for Best Artist in the Annual Madison Area Music Awards, Pergament spits with the consciousness of a Tom Waits who has mellowed considerably and now shares life wisdom in a jazz club.

Tracks like “Bomb Drop” reveal political commentary. Reverb and Pergament’s vocal dynamics add to the emotional intensity of the songs.
