Unknown Instructors: The Master's Voice

The aim of this record? Bring together a holy trinity of elder indie rockers–the tireless Mike Watt, the ever-exciting Joe Baiza and the raucous George Hurley–add to that David Thomas (Pere Ubu) and Dan McGuire (Saccharine Trust) and let their geek flags fly. It's clear that these cats cut their teeth on vintage King Crimson, Beat poetry, jazz and the like. Trouble is, too often the tunes seem to meander about with little or no aim of their own, never really resolving in a satisfactory way and never evolving into much more than short jams. Shame, too, because the talent here is the equivalent of 22 tons of dynamite.
