Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-11-14
Free improv with two guitars and two drums -- very clattery, characterized by lots of nonmusical guitar sounds (extended playing, or lots of tiny plinks and chops). Mostly fast-paced and involving. Nice stuff.

1- Noisy, clattery. Percussive mesh with speckles of electric guitar
2- Slow. Second half is a noisy psychedelic freakout, still slowish.
3- A friendlier clatter that includes banjo
4- Fast paced in a low-lying way at first, with what sounds like a bass guitar doing cool curled-up sounds. Builds into a flying menace.
5- Tangibly jazzy! and nicely spacey in parts. Guitar soloing over quiet riffs
6- Epic, at 17 minutes. Quiet start and multiple improv phases. Finishes with dark, chimy guitar.
7- Gentle rustling, then *real* quiet
