Collaborative effort between these two duos yields a mashup of post post punk no wave sound art improv noise. Like smashing DNA & Wolf Eyes together with guitars whose necks were snapped yet are held together by a single string while free improv drumming propels the manic ramblings that reveal some yet to be described psychosis.

Lots of wild drumming, feedback, screaming, but also, occasionally something that is more introspective and mellow. Even intimate sound poetry finds a place here. It seems as if these more careful moments are placed on more strategic positions here and bring a better balance to this disc. Thirty-three quite intense minutes here which will leave no listener unharmed or relaxed in anyway, I should think. There is a fine, raw energy emerging from this disc. Tiring, but satisfying. ~ Vital Weekly
