recorded over two all-night improv sessions in 1994 and starring a remarkable cast of musicians (suicide’s alan vega, big star’s alex chilton and singer-songwriter ben Vaughn) this album merges the disparate styles of these individual legends into something altogether different and unexpected – growling elvis-meets-ian Curtis vocals, rockabilly guitar, metronomic drums and moody synths.

Originally released by Henry Rollins on his 2.13.61 label via Thirsty Ear the album didn’t seem to find its’ audience in the freshly post-grunge landscape of the mid-nineties, and the group went their separate ways after only two live performances. this is a chance to hear a timeless yet tragically overlooked album from some of the 20th century’s most innovative creative voices.
