A long lost gem fades into obscurity...

"its a real shame that Barkmarket broke up. yeah, Dave Sardy would rather earn the big bucks by being a big name producer for Rick Rubin's American label. thats great for him, but sucks for us Barkmarket fans. and to make matters even worse, practically all of Barkmarket's catalog is out of print (including L Ron), which doesn't really make much sense. this album is one of my all-time favorites. but I'm not quite sure about the whole L Ron thing. is this meant to be a sarcastic poke, or are the Barkmarket guys really scientologists? if they are, I've lost all respect for them. but anyway, this album is the pinacle of their greatness. it rocks, its raw & primative, its cryptic, its poetic and creative, and its original. we can only guess what they could have accomplished if they made another album after this one. well, this is the age of the reunions. comebacks = $$$. maybe Sardy will come to his senses and consider the possibilities. I'm sure the other 2 guys in the band could use the money. God knows I would be happy to part with my hard earned cash for another Barkmarket album."
I see we're all in agreement.

"Hardest *Rocking* (not metal, really) band.... of the last decade? The only thing wrong here is that they weren't hugely successful and aren't around anymore. Buy it used, stick it in, turn it up, be flabbergasted. That's all there is to it. I need special dentistry now, because I've been gnashing my teeth together while listening to this cd."
Created a genre of its own

"Barkmarket is one of those bands that was doomed for failure from the start. They created what I refer to as the musical genre known as "Warehouse/Factory Blues" or whatever you want to call it. No other band has created a soundtrack to go with existing in the squalor of inner - city life in the warehouse/ factory district of town. When you listen to L Ron you just think of these characters running the streets of any industrial city out of sight of the normal city dwellers.
Barkmarket is also one of those bands that I take great pleasure in turning other people on to. When they get that first sonic assault, they immediately want to know who this is? Where can they get some? But alas, it is too late. Now they must get their fix by listening to the bands that Sardy produces.
I did get to see Barkmarket live one time, and god bless'em, they lived up to the reputation that they made for themselves through their studio. Working class, nightmare blues at full volume made by men who weren't pretty."
