              Whoa! Is the third track on the A side the inspiration for the record label out of Detroit of the same name? Very spacey feel to it...almost haunting, but with a funky percussion. Talk about foreshadowing.

              Over all, this is a 5 star record. There isn't a weak cut on the record, and I agree that Strange Creatures is the best track on here, but it is a seriously tough decision. Larry Heard performing way above the clouds on this one.

                This EP and the Gherkin Jerks releases in general are some of Larry Heard's most sought after productions, and a departure from his more familiar style (i.e. Mr Fingers, Fingers Inc. and The It). Gherkin has been an outlet for his more techno-orientated productions, and all cuts on this EP are more experimental in feel. For me the b-side stands out for me the most "Strange Creatures" is definately the best cut on the record, with some great windpipe sounds that give a very eerie feel to the track. A very deep record - essential!
