6/10 Brian Staff review, 17 March 2011
Now these guys sound pretty cool, albeit play music that absolutely screams 1999. You know, The Redneck Manifesto, Billy Mahonie, El Hombre Trajeado & Reynolds - that sparse instrumental post-rock stuff. This CD is forged from a single 27-minute long jam that has some nice intertwined guitars, jazzy inflections & steady quietly dynamic drums. Just as I'm getting an idea what to write the bastard thing suddenly decides to let loose & therefore rocks out alarmingly in a slightly stoner-y fashion from about seven minutes in. Then it gets a bit tech-y and gallops along for another alarming brief spurt before settling down to a meandering, introverted passage. This is almost where I bow out and leave the conclusion to startle, shock & surprise you. So, to sum-up, initially it doesn't do anything older post-rock heads won't have heard lots years ago but the comical about-turns of events are entertaining enough and the violin 13-14 mins in is most lovely. There's a mere 150 of this so don't dally.
