"The Muffins -- the band whom Fred Frith called 'the finest progressive band America produced' -- are back after an absence of two decades.Bandwidth, in production for more than two years, is the first album of new music by the band since 1980. Reformed in its best-known quartet version, the band sounds like it had never been apart. The Muffins' new music remains 'progressive' to its core in the truest meaning of that term: forward looking, boundary bursting, innovative, and yes, astonishingly fresh. Influenced by Soft Machine, Hatfield & The North, Henry Cow, Sun Ra, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and many other jazz and European progressive rock bands, this quartet forged a committed following in the USA and abroad during the 1970's until 1981, when they split up. In a world glutted with half-baked reformations by bands looking to cash in on past glories, Bandwidth is the genuine article; a reformation of all the original members who have gotten together not for money, but because they miss what they had done together in the past and who feel that they still have something to say."
