"The title refers to the computer technology applied to the mixing process. There's a great deal of computer-mutated guitar damage going on. You may think it's sampling, looping, sequencing, breakbeats, or the like, but it's electric guitar sounds transformed via silicon chips. There are also some wah-wah jams. Of the seven tracks, guitarist Bill Kellum sings on two. Lots of folks talk about mixing instrumental improvisation and the transformative capacity of digital technology -- Doldrums actually do it. They've dragged the swollen corpse of prog rock straight into the future, and brought along some mountain boogie too. No clinical demonstrations of instrumental technique or digital editing will be found on Desk Trickery, just a commitment to kick it out."
