"Our first album and we were an ambitious bunch, determined to break all the molds both geographically and sonically.
Mixing basically everything we love then as well as now into our now more familiar style, though with greater emphasis on gradual instead of non stop neck snapping. Those things of course are in no preferential order.
Prog / Kraut / Free Jazz / 20th century classical / Theater of Eternal Music / Zeuhl / noise rock and of course chicken alarm clocks!!
It was essentially a 4 piece with 3 founding members including
Jesse Klecker (later Appelhans) / drums, percussion, bow
Paul Lai / guitars, Moog, reeds
Cameron Presley / guitars, Moog, reeds
and our dear friend and engineer of the record Muir Tennerstet, and we had Glenn Galaxy (Truman's Water) join us for baritone sax." – Paul Lai August, 2019


released November 1, 2019
