Birdsongs of the Mesozoic - Fossil Record 1980-1987

The Fossil Record is all unreleased material by the original lineup (featuring Roger Miller) & an excellent overview. ''Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic has found a common ground amoung garage band rock, classical, minimalism, UK progressive rock, and it's own favorite noises.''-The New York Times. ''...fantastically innovative music.''-Exposé. ''...a fresh & almost indescribable fusion of rock, jazz, modern classical, sampled sound & noise.''
Recommended for the highly adventurous (let's face it, a band that lists "chain on metal, a Mercury Cougar hubcap and a paint can" among their instruments should be a fair warning as to their 'unorthodox behaviour'. No pun intended here, except to say that BRAND X sound like pussy cats compared to these guys). Fans of ZAPPA, KING CRIMSON, AFTER CRYING and particularly UNIVERS ZERO will love this.
