WarIsTerror Terroriswar: The Brutal Reality of Modern Brutality (Thollem)
Label: Thollem    
Released in: USA    

"Thollem Sickofwar spent hour after hour in Prague writing stacks of sheets of words during the war between Lebanon and Israel in 2006, sick in the head of war. When he arrived in Italy to play eccentriclect and free improv concerts he found himself with 3 days off, a recording studio, an ex-drummer (now saxophonist), an ex-electric bassist (now cellist), an ex-electric guitarist (now everything else), and a terrible beat-up old rickety perfect piano. Thollem wrote some songs in 3 hours using the words he had written several months before, and without teaching them to his new band mates they recorded the first album TheBrutalRealityOfModernBrutality."-Edgetone Records
