The real-time improvisations of Fred Frith (guitar), Jean Derome (reeds) and Pierre Tanguay (percussion) were processed by sound engineer Myles Boisen in his Oakland studio in 2001. There is a dark funhouse atmosphere to the music with snatches of silliness (the laughing that opens the album), whimsy (Where Your Children Are) and skronk (Canadian Psycho). The process is as interesting as the results at times, which is part oF the danger of improvisation. So the album is uneven, but the high moments are high enough to make the wait worthwhile.
