Ginchy, pummeling and darkly funked up in a sorta post-Laswell/post-Elliott Sharp fashion, the avant prog maneuvers this Japanese power trio work their way through are, for better of worse, very 90's sounding indeed. They're also damn fine. The dual leaders of this army are bassists Kato Hideki and Kimoto Kazuyoshi, the former an avant prog and improv scene fixture with a CV spanning collaborations with Otomo Yoshide, John Zorn, Ikue Mori, Fred Frith, the latter a one-time bassist for both Ruins and P.O.N. Together with Ground Zero and Novo Tono drummer Masahiro Uemura, they're a modulating hurricane of whirligig motion, albeit one with much of its motion being more supple and restrained than what you might anticipate from their former associations.
