Hailing from Providence,
Rhode Island, these ex-members of Arab On Radar, La Machine, and Bossman
play music. The kind that inspired Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore to buy
them drinks the last time they played Brooklyn.
So what does the music sound like?
I retrieved this from an e-mail sent by Jeff Schneider (apparently very
late at night):...
song one begins with a part that is derived from a raga by Ali Akbar Khan...
goes into a raw fugue where the rhythm section is out of time with the
guitar and vocals. The title, "FAREWELL MYTH" which is much like "Give
My Regards to Broadway" ...a goodbye to Sammy and all the boys at the
fourth, "CLOCKWORK" Éany hip person living in Brooklyn or L.A. or Mobile
could tell you what is good about this song... we listen to Television
and The Modern Lovers right along with the worst of 'em, except we get
something different out of the whole experience.
song seven is "NAPALM SPRINGS" a freak-out for those of us who like Harry
Pussy and Cock ESP and other folks who see it necessary to vent at times.
Mingus bass, screaming...
10th is "ULTRAVIOLET ARMS"... Suicide, Amon Duul II, No New York, No Wave
in generalÉ ya know, Mars n' stuff.
next is "FACE OF THE EARTH"... this is an MX-80 Sound song that we
covered because we love it.
last, twelfth... is "BLACK RABBIT" a one way trip to insanity, an orgasm
of sorts, the 21st Century answer to White Rabbit now that we are sure
the world is not going to survive much longer.
I hope that's a good enough answer.
