> Heck, if all else fails, put on some Satie.
I don't have and haven't heard any ZNR, but I have a disc titled TRIO by a
band called L'Ut de Classe, and the description of ZNR, as well as the Satie
elements, sure brought it to mind.
"How trite and feeble and conventional the tunes are (in the) Rhapsody in
Blue; how sentimental and vapid the harmonic treatment, under its disguise of
fussy and futile counterpoint! … Weep over the lifelessness of the melody and
harmony, so derivative, so stale, so inexpressive! " -- Lawrence Gilman, New York
