The 12” LP, “Terrible Lizards” contains only two long form pieces at the intersection of Anton Bruckner and Gavin Bryars. The A-side, “Science Fiction” is made up entirely of bleary tape loop manipulations. Beautifully meditative spaces similar to William Basinski. On Side B, “…city of god” employs more tape loops, but with a more compositional sensibility. A woman’s voice on loop repeats the phrase, “Nature has entirely disappeared, we find ourselves in the city of god,” accompanied by a plaintive piano improvisation and a fuzzed out guitar solo a-la Eddie Hazel’s psychedelic meditation on Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain.” Eerie and powerful!

This gem of a rarity and its sister 7" single have recently been reissued on Stimulus Progression a label out of Los Angeles. Long time coming!
