    This one landed like a bomb back in 1980. And it was on Rough Trade, which made it a 'must have'. Seemed to be inhabiting its own galaxy of sound. A mysterious hybrid of funk and free jazz. Looking back you can hear the Ornette influence but I don't think I knew a lot about OC back then.

    Produced by Mayo Thompson and in my opinion he didn't do a very good job. It's too thin sounding. I much prefer the Freelancing album which came out a year later and was produced by Ulmer himself. It sounds a lot chunkier.
