“It's rare in the indie world to find world-class guitarists like Bill Bechtel. The star of this Tampa Bay instrumental trio is a virtuoso, doing the genius of spacey Hendrix brooding-to-shredding-to-noodling post-punk-psychedelica that Greg Sage gave The Wipers (only sans vocals), and betraying un-Sage like avant jazz leanings, too-such as "Ghetto Dogs". But this is not Weather Channel jazz-rock, or worse, guitar-store-salesman-check-me-out stuff; Bechtel exploits distortion, feedback, and atmospheric planes to set mind scenes, in concert with bassist Red Redmond and versatile drummer Tim Tuthill, so it feels like you're being taken someplace and not taken for a ride. Even covers of Bacharach/David's 1967 #33 for Dusty Springfield, "The Look Of Love" (The Zombies' BBC version is perhaps best) and John Lennon's 1966 Beatles' Rubber Soul classic "Norwegian Wood" are transporting/trippy in this manner.”
