Like many of the recent Davenport releases, this is taken from live performances. Collected here are (at least?) two performances. Hand made cover art (a twisted, cartoonish skull drawn with marker), spray paint, and masking tape and non-coventional use of a jewel case all make the packaging on this the best of any Davenport release.
Musically, this release spreads itself across several boundaries. The first track's dense electronic noise wall brings to mind Kevin Drumm's 'Land of Lurches' or Double Leopards. The second is an acoustic, moaning dirge with screeching sounds peppering the background. The last (and nearly 30-minute) track, finds the band laying down their usual clattering squalor. At their best, they've ripped open ESP-DISK's chest, shoving the remains of Taj Mahal Travellers inside. At their worst, they've hedged their bets enough to still be playing music so obscure and impossible to define that there's still plenty to be intrigued by. 8/10 -- Dick Baldwin (25 May, 2005)
