Debut album, originally released in 1989. Featuring Bjorn Olsson, Henryk Rylander, etc. "Iggy Pop has always insisted that the Stooges were really a free-jazz band in rock drag. If you accept that, then you'll likely find Sweden's Union Carbide Productions to be the best -- or at least the most authentic -- band mining the Dee-troit vein of sonic scrunge. The first album's top tracks ('Financial Declaration,' 'Cartoon Animal') could play hide'n'seek on any late-'60s Michigan compilation tape you'd care to make, while the furthest out (like the epic 'Down on the Beach') owe more to Sun Ra. By adding howling horns (two members double on sax) and a non-traditional rhythm section that rarely functions as just a timekeeper to the wah-wah heavy rock on In the Air Tonight, UCP neatly sidesteps any charges of revivalism." --Trouser Press
