A seminal missing piece of the L.A. Free Music Society puzzle (only one track from it was included in the Lowest Form Of Music boxset), there's a serious array of L.A. underground avant goodness to be found within these grooves, with most of the major LAFMS personnel making an appearance here, both under their own names and as members of one-off projects. For my money, the really choice bits here include Vetza's mad vocalizing being macerated by Joe Potts' Airway processing, Tom Recchion's conflation of pots 'n' pans clatter, balloon squeak and distant organ themes, Rick Potts' magnificently smurfy and addled "Ode To Archaeopterx" and the trifecta of mutant pop pleasures that lead off side B, with three projects all containing largely the same personnel: the Human Hands-like art pop of Dennis Duck, Juan Gomez, Tom Recchion and Rick Potts under the moniker Paul Is Dead (the one track here that was deemed worthy of inclusion on The Lowest Form Of Music box), The Doo-Dooettes-like doink of The Square Haircutts (basically the same line-up as Paul Is Dead, with Juan Gomez replaced by one Freddie Tobiason) and the equally Doo-Dooettes-like jingle of The Fine Arts Dumpsters, which is the same line-up as Paul Is Dead, with instruments swapped among 'em. Essential.
