This tape employs the same style as the one reviewed above, but with a harsher feel to it. This one worked better for me for some reason. A live improv, these chaps really go with the harshness theme, ringing whatever they can from its scab-encrusted throat. Turn out the lights and revel in your depravity. --Reviewed by Bryan Baker 4/1/1989.
