DISCRETE CHARM OF UNPERFECTION
written by Stevan Ristić
The rhythm of publishing one album per month would be really an enterprise if we were talking about any other author. As we all recall, already in Lennon and McCartney's days in late 60s, there was a defined "recipe" of a hit song: publish it on the day when you come up with it and the next day-record it.
During the next 4 months, John Frusciante will publish 4 new albums, which in addition to the two already published will make the end result of 6 albums for only six months. Was there anyone who knows more about the character and works of the last real guitar hero who was surprised by this news? Hardly. Although the term "guitar hero" is itself a suspicious one; especially if we get to remember the 80s hard & heavy/who can play faster maniacs whose treatments of the instruments could as well have turned into some weird paraolympics discipline than be remembered as essential playing worth attention; John Frusciante is a true representative of the straightforward group of guitar-heroes, but also a representative of the likes of 60s and 70s heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Ron Asheton, Brian Jones. At the same time, he's the man who should be thanked the most for having turned Red Hot Chili Peppers from a joke band known for provocativity (back in the days their scene wardrobe consisted of socks only...strategically placed, though) and the madmens' energy they were spreading around to a band having defined their sound and become the biggest attraction around and one of the last real excitements of rock'n'roll.
