"A radical trio of musicians approaching Mike Pride's newest compositional approach based on cellular movement, snowballing momentum and the most focused and concrete of improvisations. 3 compositions based on traumatic life experiences & social critiques, whose material is based on rythmic displacement, textural formatting & in your face noise/thrash/chanting musics- in that order. This is the beginning of Pride's "Statement Musics"."-Funhole Records
