Four sessions, truncated/remixed, amounting to what would
be a 3-sided LP set! Apt for Triax of course. There seemed to be a sci-fi
feel to this one, so I took Michael Moorcock's "The Hollow Lands"
book and came up with titles Chris Conway fashion (well, kind of, some of my
random page openings resulted in nothing useful) applying them to the tracks.
Again this is Triax venturing on to new territory, a music rich with strange
sound textures, spacey moments, plunges into weird cacophony, rhythmic
phases, and crescendos of great power!
