This CD was once rare and illegal, now it's common and freely available. "During the final year of their existence, Bastro was the power trio of Bundy K. Brown, John McEntire, and David Grubbs. Antlers is an attempt to represent what Bastro was doing in 1991. It represents a period in which Bastro seemed to be changing from show to show, playing intricately constructed instrumentals with utter abandon. Many of these instrumental pieces later morphed into Gastr del Sol songs. Compositions were in flux, with the band soon to follow. These are among its final recordings, but they sound less like death throes than chin scratchings and chargings onward. Antlers consists of cassette recordings made by audience members. It has a rough, blasting-at-you quality that perfectly suits these headlong performances. This enhanced CD also includes live footage of the group in Germany and Holland during their final tour."
