1.) Brutal Death Metal band hailing from the depths of Hell.
2.) Black Metal band from Victoria, BC.
3.) If the first Shibboleth release was a
prime time television special, Experiment
in Error is a theatrical, wide screen
experience. Recorded over the span of
three years under the watchful eye of
Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Loretta Lynn),
the sophomore release began with a
focus on the core of the band - organ,
guitar, bass and drums. Several years of
live playing tightened the band and the
addition of drummer Jim White (Allison
Krauss) is undeniable. After the initial
tracks were completed it became clear
that the material demanded a more
detailed approach and many months of
overdubbing ensued. Various and sundry
vintage keyboards and synthesizers were
acquired and put to use. The horn skills of
Chris McGuire and Randy Graham were
employed. The tambourine and shaker
stylings of Matt Kellum captured. A new
guitar amp was purchased. Old guitar
amps were borrowed. Seasons passed.
Haircuts were received. And fi nally, one
sunny day in March, Experiment in Error
was removed from the oven and gingerly
placed on the windowsill to cool. Serve
at room temperature with a wedge of
cheddar cheese and a pint of Guinness.
For just a moment, you are stranded in an
elevator with the least-popular members
of T-Rex, The Carpenters and The Kinks,
along with George Jones’ hairpiece. The
elevator shudders somewhere between
the mezzanine and rooftop grotto, and
suddenly you are rocketed skyward by the
excruciatingly serene tones of Shibboleth.
Forty-fi ve minutes later the bell dings and
you’re on your way back to the lobby.
Shibboleth is Rich Martin (Keyboards),
Don Cento (Guitars), James Driscoll
(The Bass). The band performs live with
a revolving cast of superstars on the
drumset, but joining them on Experiment
in Error is drummer Jim White.
