Cape Catastrophe

Percy Jones
Cape Catastrophe (Gonzo)
Fretless bass got something of a reputation during the ‘80s which, despite honourable mentions to Mick Karn (surely a Jones fan?), it still hasn’t fully recovered from. But lest we forget innovators like Jaco Pastorius and Percy Jones originally did things without frets that, even today, sound mind boggling. Perhaps better known for his work with Brand X and Brian Eno, Jones solo output is not huge (just this and Propeller Music in fact), but it is remarkable and this solo effort recorded in 1988 and 1989 using an array of early synths to lay down tracks and then accompany live on his five-string bass is gob-smackingly astounding.
