"How to describe Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx? Jeez, listening to this album just makes you remember what an interesting time 1980 was musically. Robert Fripp, best known as the channeler of the Crimson King in his many incarnations, puts together an absolutely bad-ass TIGHT four piece that can rock like nobody's business. If ever there was music for cerebral slamdancing, this is it. This is instrumental music, so don't expect your typical punk lyrics. It is the attitude, however, of this outfit that carries the day. Fripp has truly amazing fingers--how can any one human being play all those notes, that fast, that disciplined and still just rock?! Sara Lee on bass (later in Gang of Four, B-52's), Johnny Toobad on drums (is that a great name or what?) and Barry Andrews on organ (later of Shriekback) round out this dance combo. There is a certain degree of repetition in the music--but that is as much by design as anything. This a live recording--an official bootleg, if you will--compiled from several different dates at two different venues. This concert never occurred in the strict sense of the word, so we get two passes at Inductive Reasoning (both great) and three Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx (each different, variations and improvizations--showing off how incredibly talented each player is). A most worthwhile listen--not just for King Crimson fans but for people who like to think along with their rock!"
Essential to your post-punk/avante rock collection

"just recieved this little gem in the mail--popped it in and was whisked off to the late 70's/early 80's post-punk era--wild electric elastic energy--no pretense---fripp-driven instrumentals---sounds like the 80's incarnation of king crimson without adrian belew---a definite must for those of us exploring music by way of the heart---this cd makes me want to toss away all the crap in my collection---reminds me what its all about----just buy it"
My all-time fave!
