Great Depression

There’s no question that #JeffersonStarship rings with echoes of the Airplane but there's something new at work as well. The Jefferson Airplane was one of the first and the most important bands to emerge from San Francisco. It became known for its howling, raging music and its imperious iconoclasm which evolved from pharmaceutical to political radicalism. The Starship’s musical structures reflect the pyramiding architecture but with less hard-edged screech. Jorma Kaukonen developed into a driving power guitarist while Craig Chaquico, the new band’s lead player, has a lighter touch, more melodic and lacking Kaukonen’s slashing ‘killer instinct.’ Balin and, to a degree, David Freiberg weave a strand of funk into Starship’s fabric that brings welcome respite from the Slick/Kanter formalism. Moreover, instead of one ostentatiously rumbling Jack Cassidy on bass, Starship has the depth of two bass players, Freiberg and Pete Sears, both of whom double on keyboards. The richness of choicein textures and the new band’s enthusiastic delivering if them, although still not equal to the heights the Airplane often reached, has given them their success. From the January 1st, 1976 issue of @RollingStone.
