Recording information: Gastation In Toronto.Over the course of two (admittedly lengthy) compositions, this forward-looking Montreal nonet bridges the gaps between several styles and takes listeners on a constantly shifting sonic journey. They combine the swirling atmospherics of ambient music with the uncompromising textures and socio-political vision of the Rock In Opposition crowd, framing it all in a semi-classical, string-dominated style that recalls the avant-chamber prog of Univers Zero or Art Zoyd.The instrumental "Moya" is full of subtle dynamic shifts and intriguing sonic juxtapositions, but it's "Blaise Bailey Finnegan III" that's most striking. It features snippets of a taped conversation with an outspoken/slightly "off" self-styled poet (presumably the piece's namesake), who offers his vitriolic views on America's current political/economic climate over Godspeed's instrumental backing. Highly original and unforgettable.
