Not to be Confused with the Metal Band by the Same Name...

Although this CD is out of print, a Google search will show that excerpts of this album by Diamondhead have made it onto many online radio shows. This drone outfit was started by L. Eugene (Lonnie) Methe ("The New Obama"). Hailing from Omaha & Philly, Mr Methe sought musical refuge in Austin for a time and played live gigs with the rhythm section from The Young.

"...the entire album manages to sound like they're in the process of tuning up for a real gig that probably happened after someone turned off the tape recorder." - RKF, Dead Angel

"Throbbing rhythms and loopy experimentalism trade body blows. No one wins, but it sounds really cool."- Jon Worley

"You Could Call It a Gimmick but That’s Just Short-Sightedness..."

Originally released on Anomalous Records, this album was re-issued by Sublime Frequencies, where all copies quickly sold out! The sonic explorations captured by Robert Mills fit well within the parameters of the Alan Bishop recordings on the Sublime Frequencies record label so it's not a big shock that they picked up this auditory treasure.

"Let Millis be your guide on this mini-odyssey through strange lands; great to listen to and also useful as an insight as to the one of many 'bedrock' influences on the work of this very singular band."
-- Ed Pinsent / The Sound Projector
