Label: The Thing Records    
Released in: Austria    

Skronky improv from the trio of Mats Gustafsson (sax), Ingebrigt Haker Flaten (electric bass) and Paal Nilssen-Love (drums) in this vinyl issue of their 2011 Smalltown Superjazz release. While touring the album in 2011 Gustafsson referred to the title as representing "the bandŐs mono mania", with the recordings and release in monaural. Including a cover of Sonny Rollins' "Alfie's Theme," this is prime garage jazz from three incredible players who have released an amazingly diverse set of releases representing some of the hardest-hitting and most intense free improv work of the 21st century.

Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
