2008 release. This is the second release by mysterious Seattle assemblage, The Sea Donkeys. "... a divinely ragged live blast that combines a more garage rocking taking on the communal folk breakdowns of The Cherry Blossoms with killer Shaggs/Godz-style drum violence, drunk choir vocals and the kinda fidelity that makes it all sound like a great VU bootleg. There are inspired covers of material like 'It's A Rainy Day' by Faust and Albert Ayler's 'Ghosts' (which wins out over countless lame indie free jazz versions by re-staging it as a melancholy avant rock dirge as played by Don Van Vliet and the Maher Shalal Hash Baz orchestra) and the more rocking sections are a near perfect amalgam of primitive avant brut, stumble punk oblivion and beautiful melodic chord solos. Recommended. " --David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue
