    This is such a great record ! Very typical of the high-energy eclectism of NYC at this time.
    Truus de Groot is the leader of the band,and at the occasion of a trip to NYC, she was looking fro some people to work with. Two buddies came by, and it was Lee Ranaldo and David Linton.
    David Linton would record the best version ever of Rhys Chatham "Guitar Trio" later on in june, and Lee Ranaldo would get involved in Glenn Branca's "Ascension" and the first Sonic Youth mini-LP in december... I don't have to mention how legendary those two buddies are about this music...
    Here, in this context, we would find a Lee Ranaldo playing the guitar in a much more minimal punk way than the crazy carillon-like way he would develeopp with Sonic Youth, and also something that would become very rare with Sonic Youth, we can here him sing & shout on some of the best tracks of this short LP. In a really excellent way i assume !
    All this music is fantastic minimal no-wave-electro-punk-shit with metronomic synth patterns, nasty guitars and motoric rythms. This David Linton is amazingly great here, just as a human beatbox with this crazy groove he had (as on "Guitar Trio" or later in Elliott Sharp band I/S/M, another unacceptably forgotten masterpiece).
    There's something of an agressive and minimal version of early Devo with something coming from Can and Neu! all flavoured with this NYC post-no-wave sound.
    You'll see i'm repeating constantly the same words, it's because i'm half speachless and half french so english is not my language...
    Let's repeat it again a last time : this is a great album !!
