	KFJC new album review (July 31, 1996)
	It can be said this was a long time in the making since Dennis
	Warren, Gil, Owens, and Malik all went to school in the Black
	Music Division of Antioch College, directed by none other than
	Cecil Taylor.  It is jazz and improve in pretty complex form.
	There is skronk, but it isn't just sploogin' cause the
	percussion is intense and creates an entire layer of sound that
	doesn't just provide the rhythm, it competes with the horns.
	Adam's Garden Sketch is the simplest, and most groove ridden
	track.  Mallets is a 25:30 747 ride in turbulence, that can be
	played over "Runaway Train." Some one should sneak these guys
	into some club near the Olympics and when these fat ugly
	American touristas come into the joint looking for dinner club
	jazz and a high cholesterol cream butter and cheese lobster
	dish, FMRJ can just blow them a new colostomy bag.
