"Massive steel vessels reverberate and rumble as splintered reeds puncture ear drums. The Hermetic Trio consists of Bill Doob (of Karamazov Tapes, Million Brazilions) Jefferson Zurna (The Alters, 3 Moons), and a mysterious third member known only as “Adam”. Crude and inspired improvisations recorded in an underground cavern, deep beneath Providence, Rhode Island. Huge and abrasive weeping tones ooze out of the dueling reeds in a fierce open ended battle of zurna vs. clarinet, while rhythmic room tone pounding and stomping hammers it all home. Obtuse, and all the better for it. Both of these two side long tracks are equal parts field recording and sporadic composition. Real time duplicated clear shell cassette with black lacquer-sealed labels comes packaged with a full color double sided fold out cardstock J-card featuring a shadowy original photograph by Jefferson himself, shot in the deep subterranean location. Jingling, bleeding freaks and non-jazz freedom for the socially retarded." - LIGHTEN UP SOUNDS
