Marvin Pontiac is the alter ego of John Lurie - a famed no wave musician part of New York's Lounge Lizards back at the turn of the 1980s. The Asylum Tapes do what they say on the tin by being recordings made by Lurie when he was incarcerated at Esmerelda State Mental Institution. It is a disturbing, raw, sometimes beautiful collection of short-burst songs with a lonesome bluesy feel.
