Comment: the first chords of the self-titled issue of the trio of Ed Landis, Ross Martin, and Eric Hunter Bruno reveal that it is recorded as a self-indulgent production. Indeed, it embarks on with hand clapping at Doctor Janikowski as if actors coming up to the stage. Later on, the frantic canard of guitar induced sounds is ready to penetrate through tiny slots of the listener`s brain. Indeed, the concept is thoroughly experimental and mind-boggling – the reversed lo-fi guitars are up to create invigorated background for buried vocal deliveries which at times are variegated with drowsy ambient electronics and programmed beats. It might remind of early releases of the Fall (for instance, Perverted By Language), The Residents, old school industrial/post-punk acts like Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA. Especially Banana Compost Phase #4 used to run in the vein of the last mentioned style. More profoundly, it is ticklingly nihilistic and dada induced anti-pop piece. The final piece High Gain exploits shimmery guitar chords and explosive noise dynamites to create tension and contrast inside the track throughout the course. The issue is a part of the discography of a label with the uncanny name, Interplanetary Floral Star.
