Alan, Steve, Jim: electronics, instruments and effects.

Starting with a bizarre cascade of looped smashing/crashing sounds, and other stuff, things then calm down as we submerge in a surreal cosmic sludge, with flanged and mutated sounds, as a distant temple drum beats slowly... That's track 1, setting the stage for an unpredictable trek to Endgame pastures new! Take, for example "Polycrete" a big sound slab, musique-concrete with a difference. As it goes on it all becomes like a surrealistic dream, aptly pictured by Jim's weird cover art!

First edition (quantity not specified) - released ?/3/2010.
