Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2006-05-17 
Noise rock, psyche improv, two long tracks of improvised guitar centered distorto heavily treated acid drenched stonedness, the type of stuff that has KFJC tripping over themselves to “co-present” somewhere like Terrastock. Treated guitar/bass/drums with some subtle girl-moans, obtuse vocals. Think Acid Mothers Temple, F/i. I dunno, Japanoise, taking mushrooms, plugging in every pedal in your gear bag including the Echoplex and cranking the amp.

(note, only two tracks tracked)

1) false start, sounds like a radio in-studio set up, launches into psyche noise rock epicness with wah’ed guitar and girl wailing buried in back, goes double time and gets intense then falls apart/ends after ~9 minutes, a little dead air then another jam (probably shouldve been tracked separately), starts with 4 minutes or so of sparse sounds and whistling, then a noisey jam follows to end, with 20 seconds of studio sounds/dead air left
2) slower, more mindful start, builds heavily in a free-jazz sense til around 11 minutes where it quiets a bit, toward end it turns into something resembling vintage Confusion is Sex era Sonic Youth with the girl stepping up to the mic and babbling a la Kim Gordon on peyote.
