Fucked-up, deranged and straight-up confrontational Jandek grail, taking a scruffier garage-y route than the earlier, more isolated, strung-out acoustic offerings that lay the foundations of his legendary Corwood Industries private press.  It feels like concentrated anger and a total distain for modern civilisation, the last scraps of sanity hanging on by a thread.  There’s no intel on the others that have been drawn into the madness - a female vocal that’s spread between spoken dialect, all-out wailing and strained, held-vibrato into quite moments of folky introspection suddenly evolving into maniacal, abusive drumming with a surprising intensity not seen elsewhere in the Jendek sprawl.  Quick rhythm passages teetering on the edge of a cliff and just about holding it together before descending into fierce, disorderly cacophony.  Raw emotion laid bare in its crudest form!  Rare!  (NM/NM).
