While classic Zoviet France is unparalleled in greatness, it is unfortunate Ben has taken the path of digital gear. It sure shows in the music. Nothing against computers, its just that classic era Zoviet France was this timeless beautiful thing that seemed to have vanish when Robin Storey left. The Reformed Faction is up to snuff without losing that eloquent intangible. I stepped outside while *ZF* played a show a few years ago in San Francisco when I saw the digital gear they were using but made it back to see Michael Gira play. I will however be flying to Boston to see Mark and Robin play this November.

Here is an idea... how about Ben gives up the Zoviet France name and starts a misc. boring - run of the mill experimental side project. Then the Reformed Faction can restore the tarnished name, Zoviet France, once and for all!
