the debut release from texas' favorite psychedelic voyagers, on vinyl for the first time ever. originally self released as an ultra-limited cassette way back in 1992, it was later reissued on the bands own wholly other imprint in a much edited form, only to go out of print again. here the original cassette track list and sequence is restored, minus too covers songs. a historic milestone in the story of the contemporary underground, as well as an extremely mind-melting dose of outsider drone/folk/psych in its own right. the duo of tom & christina carter here managed to wrap their fingers and minds around a whole slew of sonic vibrations, while at the same time clearly charting their own low-key and unique course. tapping into about every slant of damaged texas exploration, this massive recording flows through haunting lo-fi slow motion folk, full-blown, fuzzed-out spacerock, beautiful outsider acid psych, fizzing drone experimentation, loose blues forms and plenty of higher minded guitar improvisation, all with a certain shining wide-eyed bliss. and yes, christina's voice was just as jaw dropping then as it is now… while worlds away from charalambides recent outings on one level, those sonic tendrils trace a clear line back to the sweet seeds planted here…
