"Economy Of Motion"
catalog number: GR#55


Ex-DAZZLING KILLMAN Nick Sakes posed this question -How does a band like Minneapolis' COLOSSAMITE fit into the scheme of things happening in music today? Borders Books And Music put 'em in the "Jazz" section. "Economy Of Motion" sounds like a comp-mix tape gone awry. A meeting ground of hardcore, "noise", "improvisation"... Black Flag vs This Heat. Aggro burdened with after thoughts and a bit-o-honey. The most Killmen-ish of the post DK bands, this one sports members of Iceburn and Gorge Trio.
