6/10 Mike Staff review, 30 June 2011
This record is utterly bonkers. Totally out there improv jazz psychedelia featuring drums, saxophone and two upright basses. Yeah, two. The garish sleeve, which appears to have been drawn on Paint (the software, not the substance) kind of bears that out. Each side of the disc is taken up by a single track, 'Complex Solar Forms' on side A, 'Inner Lunar Fantasy' on side B. In 'Complex Solar Forms' we've got super busy and very free jazz. Chaos, basically. Ten minutes in and it's kind of wearing a bit thin for me now...but no sooner do I say that than we're on some kind of Martian lounge trip which is much less jarring, but by the end of the side it gets back into full on clattering, spluttering, arrhythmic freak-out mode. The second side is more of the same, really. They never seem in much danger of finding a groove or melody, it's quite disorientating really. It's dark, intense, experimental and ultimately I'm finding it pretty hard work, but I can't objectively say it's bad either. If you're after a trip into the deepest realms of nightmarish psych maybe this is exactly what you're looking for...
