descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Recorded in Cork, Fermoy and Chicago. Members of Tortoise and Supersilent join the hugely talented guitarist Mark O'Leary in a recording that pushes the boundaries on all levels, Post Miles Electronica could be an adequate description. Fusion, Rock, Soundscapes, Electronica all combine to create a kaleidoscope of musical images not too dissimilar from the manipulated film frame images of Stan Brakhage, whose work adorns the cd cover and lends its name to this recording."-FMR
