Released 1995 on Vinyl Communications
Reviewed by David Cotner, 07/12/2002ce

A 7" playable at 33-1/3 RPM, but just as effective at 16-2/3 or 8 RPM (where it should also be heard; stubbing one's toe moves at a different rate than does a car crash immediately in one's own lane). Much banging and aural onomatopoeia leads to visions of struggle atop an out-of-control steam locomotive. The b-side is slightly deeper, rhythmic, and more bass-inflected / infected, leading to envision of an out-of-control steam locomotive struggling atop the listener.
