"Tono Bungay, the name appropriated from a title of an H.G. Wells novel, have been being densely realized in New York City for five years now. Their first LP was released by Twisted Village in 1993 setting off a reverberation that continues to effect many of the newer rock bands leaning towards more improvisation. During the past year, the band has been in full swing, touring the Northeast and releasing two ten inchers, one a split with Tower Recordings. Tono Bungay is composed of Bob Bannister on guitar and Robert Dennis on guitar and electronics and kept in constant forward motion by drummer Tony Cenicola. Wunderkammer opens with their first ever 'song' (with vocals even!), and then careens through 7 purely improvised pieces of brooding psychedelic ecstasy. There's no passage unfilled here; Bannister's guitar navigates the often hazardous free rock river with a confidence of a captain that's got something to say. The CD, (no vinyl this time), and booklet are accompanied by Tony's lovely, surreal photographs, each signifying a song title."
