First in a somewhat hazily conceived series of disks documenting the Charalambides 'woodshed' years of 95-98, when we were busily (sometimes frantically) trying to come up with a 'rock' trio record (our idea) for Siltbreeze. We failed. Instead, here's a handful of recordings that follow many of the vectors between Market Square and Houston- from blatant backward psych fuzziness to spare gtr/ vox exhalations, from modal drone to 4 trk song-isms, and a lot of sheer what-the-hell gropings into the void. One track features jason bill and a disemboweled piano.
