Rudolph Grey: Transfixed

Transfixed was released in 1988 on New Alliance Records, catalogue # NAR 036. As far as I know this was never issued as a CD. "Ghosts" is mildly reminiscent of the work Doyle and Grey were doing back when they were together in The Blue Humans. "1,000 Luminous Flowers" and the title track are blasts of pure guitar energy with the amps cranked up to 11. Only "Whirl" provides anything close to relief, and even it, which I believes features Crane on piano, is extremely dissonant. Definitely not for the faint of heart.
