Forever Einstein - Down With Gravity LeLange

This is the fourth album from the Connecticut-based instrumental trio Forever Einstein. Guitarist Chuck Vrtacek wrote most of the material, which calls upon the formidable chops of all three players. This music also embraces a hefty amount of compositional smarts and humor. Bass guitarist Jack Vees and drummer John Roulat are not limited to solely rhythm section duties, as they pop in and out of every other layer in the music. The recording is crisp and clear, with Roulat's cymbals ringing with a particularly warm presence. As has become the band's custom, the song's titles (clearly devised after the fact), are fanciful, cerebral, and lengthy--each one being, in fact, a sentence of its own. This music mixes overt experimentation with progressive, highly-composed structures and good rocking fun.

Reminds me of old SWANS, played at 45 RPM - mostly -, mixed with good-humored CONTROLLED BLEEDING.
If there would be a shot of "Third From The Sun"-PRONG in it, it would be worth 5 points.

1988 is correct; bought it before 1990. WEW did earlier recordings than 1991, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Entertainment_War#Televisionary_.281989.29

The artists names are all aliases of members of The Shortlist.
The only known to me are: Sonny Spider ->Roger Chapman. Ramblin' Ray Rubble -> Boz Burrell
Ba Butler is possibly Poli Palmer
Uncle Willie Wonky is possibly Tim Hinkley or Zoot Money
Lips O'Gonnagen is possibly Mel Collins

About the others i have no idea ('til now).

That's true! Since I've bought "Trout Mask Replica" in 1969 it's my ever and only #1 album. Heard it many hundred times and it is new as if it was the first time. Greatest album ever!
