He never played a bum note in his life. Every single one was meant.

I don't know why, but I've always found Derek's approach to guitar playing to be much more interesting on paper rather than recorded. I adore Keiji Haino, Fred Frith and several other avant-garde guitarists but this album, along with several others released under Bailey's name just annoys and bores me. Alot of fans I've talked to describes themselves getting lost and mesmerized by his playing. It's probably me who's a dullard.
That said, I realise that he's definitely a very talented guitar player, and he still inspires me to some degree.

How would I describe this record? Alot of random notes and chords, bum notes and the like. I don't really enjoy this at all.
