A pretty heady group from the Chicago scene at the start of the 70s – an unusual combo who make music that's a bit freak, a bit fuzz, and a bit folk – almost always with a strongly political vibe! The group were formed in the wake of the Kent State Massacre, and have a very communal approach – led by singer/
guitarist Howard Berkman, who rote all the music – but featuring a shifting array of sounds on percussion, piano, organ, and even a bit of violin! At times, there's a current of darkness that almost recalls the third Velvet Underground album, while other moments move between the energy of acoustic Dylan-styled music, and more freewheeling Fugs
-like styles. Titles include "Don't Kill The Babies", "Snow Bitch", "Kathleen", "CTA", "I Want To Talk To You", "Evolution", "Hello Big City", and "Like To Make It Back To Puerto Rico".
