Improvisation, not indeterminacy...

"Crom tech succeeded with their music on many different levels. First of all, the instrumentation was HIGHLY structuralized for improvised music (John Cage, in contrast, composed; thought I use the term loosely). This in itself is very unusual for any music that draws from free-jazz (which crom-tech obviously did). The guitar and drums play WITH each other (not against each other, as it is traditionally often done in this kind of music)in a very intricate fashion. Crom-tech (as well as The Cranium, a band who worked closely with crom-tech) were searching for a NEW way to experience music. If new music doesn't sound weird the first time you hear it, it's probably not all THAT new... To simply call a music "noise" does not make it so. One must first define what noise is, and then decide whether or not the music in question fits the definition. "Noise" is simply any sound that one does not wish to hear. A conventional pop song interferring with a transimission from a radio tower could easily qualify as noise for an airplane pilot who is distracted from listening to her next instruction. Crom-tech found the perfect balance between conventional rock-music and improvised/creative music. The music that they left us with is both equally accessible and challenging. They will be missed by many."

"Whenever I feel too romantic and serious about music, I put this on and go &$"·&@()?¿)$·)&·!". I just LOVE this kind of attitude, blasting away without compromise, leaving nothing but startled critics and confused musicians in the way. The DEFINITIVE post-punk for me... done with masterous dexterity by the way... INCREDIBLE."

"I originaly saw this band perform live in Minneapolis. This ensamble exists as a two piece (guitar & drums), they execute songs that average 1 to 2 minutes in lenght. Their arrangments consist of tightly organized playing that can only be described as amazing. Crom-tech proves that sensory overload is a good thing. The fact that this cd is still available on this forum is a stupendous achievment, for this type of music. I could only hope that Mobo & FLoater are still putting out more amazing tracks of madness. Not much info is floating around out there."
