Victor Acker

Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: November 12, 1960    

They’re at it again!...I will resist the urge to sputter about not having been asked to write a commentary on the last Acker Bros. record If That, Then This…water over the bridge, guys. This latest offering by the brothers, who have been unfairly characterized as second-string ditty-smiths, is a foray into musical territory yet unknown (perhaps unknowable!) to their dry, high-brow, poll-reading critics. This music grooves, bops…as incandescent as a neon sign! And there could be no more fitting a title than Wigged Out! Take, for instance, the track “I Dream of Zeenies”…paging Doctor Freud! More than music, this record is punctuated with sonic exclamation points of a kind you might hear in some soulful sci-fi fantasy. If “Misty” is your bag, put this record back on the shelf. If you can dig today’s souped-up sounds, put your bebop records back in their dust jackets, slap this on the changer, and strap yourself in for lift-off….Houston, there is NO problem here!...
