I have the vinyl of this as a promo. My ear tells me guitarist Sonny Sharrock is on this uncredited. So those of you out there who want everything this legendary guitarist has done, you'll need this too. He is clearly heard on the tune Bad Blood. This is an amazing album and a nice complement to what Laswell was up to around this time. A similar rarity is Last Exit's most accessible Iron Path. Though at times more than an average stereo system could handle, the layering and experimentation that Laswell and company were involved in at the period define a seminal time when improvisational/jazz music and heavy metal/prog sensibilities were merging into a wonderful blend that can still be heard through the likes of Justin Broadrick's Jesu and others today generically defined as alterna-metal or alterna-dub. For some equally interesting sounds from this period, Motorhead's orgasmatron and PIL's Generic LP. See also Zorn, Broadrick and Laswell's Painkiller for more.
