Great new minimal avant garage three-way trio splurge featuring a buncha gents from the Brisbane scene – Matt Earle of Craft Bandits/xNoBBQx etc on drums and electronics, Adam Park of Sprot on bass and Rohan Holiday of Kitten Party/Teen Sex on guitar. The music is really stripped down, with aspects of the live Jandek sound but even more distressed, with single notes creeping along the fretboard like a narcoleptic Magic Band or early Royal Trux while the bass blows feedback at the drums and Earle falls down the stairs in slow motion. Fractured avant blues at some kind of non-musicianly apex. . - c.2011 David Keenan
