Replendent is Mike Lenzi. Former member of the bands Number One Cup and Fire Show. There are currently 4 Resplendent CD's, all of which you can get through us at Perishable. The recordings are a combination of home and studio work and are well done by people who know how to make a good recording. Mike gets folks he likes and respects to play music with him. We like Mike, so we try to help him get his product out there...

I guess I'll have to pick up a few of those. Is there one to start with?

The one that I'm most familiar with is the latest I Am Free/Am I Free.

this is a 2 CD set, but it's not long. It's between 40 and 50 minutes total, I think. I transferred the basics from Michael's tape machine to the studio computer so he could have it mixed and it wasn't hugely long or anything. He's concieved and packaged it in a way that makes the listener get up to hear the 2nd half...just like they had an LP to flip. That's what he told me, anyway.

I think the sonic and conceptual quality of Michael's work improves with each one. Maybe you wanna start with this latest one and work backwards if you like what you hear? I dunno. It all had to pass muster with the musical tastes of the disparate members of the Perishable family for us to want to help him sell it. We like it all, for whatever that's worth...

Mike makes good music...I'd advise the same as Clava to start with I Am Free and work backwards. Each release is better than the one before IMO. I'm pretty sure there are mp3s you can listen to at Resplendent's site to help you decide which you like best.
The Rutili/Adamik/Massarrella contribution to Casket City Wolves is much more subtle than other records they've pitched in on so don't expect to really hear their sound on the record, the sound is all Lenzi.
