Where to begin? Before he was your favorite scribe on SkullsNbones, your’s truly, King Rhino, was a stand-up comedian. It paid the bills for over 30 years. And, in full disclosure? Have worked with Don Jamieson in the past. So, what can I say about his new album but … hysterical! The age of comedy albums may be behind us, but Jamieson, formerly of That Metal Show, is still getting out there live onstage in front of audiences and doing what comics do … making people laugh.
Obviously, Don’s style of humor tends to stray towards the rock/metal avenue these days, much like his co-host and stand-up comedian Jim Florentine. But, that’s exactly what Jamieson’s audience wants to hear and enjoy, much like Jim Breuer, who has crossed the lines of stand-up and metal to create a kick-ass comedy show.
Being that Communication Breakdown is a live performance album, I can’t single out any particular tracks, but I will say the “Kiefer” story is pretty hysterical.
Communication Breakdown is out now on Metal Blade Records. Buy it here!
