I guess that not many bands have left-overs that amount to a great album! But that's the case here, and an ideal introduction to the early Triax sound. And to think, I just compiled it for our own reference originally, only realising how good it was when I re-listened to it many years later. For those that don't know, Triax are Dave Powell and his electrified hurdy-gurdy accompanied by experimental musicians Alan and Steve Freeman, aka Alto Stratus. Top quality recording, huge tracks, challenging music! Now, what more could you want for just a fiver?!
