Japan's RUINS have extensive experience and a tireless
commitment! A furious barrage of explosive and intricately composed drum(s)
and bass (guitar) -- Ruins cover all stops between hardcore's hysteric
intensity, free jazz's confounding inscription and the drama of progressive
rock. No slack. No slop. Absolute masters of quick change, stop-start
tempos and time-signatures, Ruins craft an unprecedented amalgam of originality,
all sung in a peculiar language of their own invention. "Refusal Fossil"
contains new recordings of previously unreleased tracks, plus bonus live
performances. Twenty cuts in all- An hour-long blast of zig-zag calisthenics!
