Ok, so this collection of long time punk guys; Mike Watt(bass) and George Hurley(drums)- minutemen, Joe Baiza(guitar)-Saccharine Trust, and a trio of vocalist; Dan McGuire, Raymond Pettibon and David Thomas recorded this "jazz" record. OK, so...

I have hear some of the other recordings that this trio has recorded with these same vocalists in the past and though I am not a big avant-garde jazz fan, I kinda liked those records.

I listened to this record a number of times and all I could think about was that scene from the movie, Spinal Tap where they're playing an outdoor show and start jamming on this jazzy noodling shit.

If these guy enjoy playing this type of music all the more power to them. It's just not for me. So all you jazz/punk fans, this just may be the record you've been waiting for to cure what ails ya. And that's cool. It's better to feel good then to wallow in sickness. So take care all and enjoy this if it's what works for you.
