About the album

there's a time to cheer – a time to cry / time to live or a time to die / there's a time to sleep – a time to wake / a time for real and a time for fake
These lyrics sound so familiar, as if they were from a classic blues or rock piece. But they are only the lyrics of "Hurry Up'n' Wait", the second track on "Take the Floor and Lift the Roof", the brand new album from Christy Doran's New Bag. And they set the tone for the CD. Far from New Bag's fiddling around with free funk of earlier times, "Take the Floor and Lift the Roof" is clearly on the path of rock. The booklet text announces a "musical ball of lightning, which sometimes sounds as if the avant-garde electronic musician Aphex Twin had fusioned with Tony Williams' Emergency!“ Sometimes this ball of lightning reminds you of a kind of ProgRock like you know it more from acts such as King Crimson and Captain Beefheart. Doran and Co. really give us a genuine NEW BAG with this album.

Dieser Text klingt derart wohlvertraut, als ob er einem Blues- oder Rock-Klassiker entstammt. Doch so beginnt einfach nur der Songtext von „Hurry Up'n' Wait“, dem zweiten Track auf „Take the Floor and Lift the Roof“, dem brandneuen Album von Christy Doran's New Bag. Und stellt damit klare Weichen. Abseits von New Bag's frickligem Free Funk früherer Zeiten wandelt „Take the Floor and Lift the Roof“ deutlich auf den Pfaden des Rock. Der Booklet-Text vermeldet einen „musikalischen Kugelblitz, der sich manchmal anhört, als hätte der avantgardistische Elektroniker Aphex Twin mit Tony Williams' Emergency! fusioniert.“ Und manchmal erinnert dieser Kugelblitz auch an eine Art ProgRock, wie wir ihn eher von Acts wie King Crimson oder auch Captain Beefheart kennen. Mit diesem Album schenken uns Doran und Co nun wirklich eine echte NEW BAG.
