This is the tenth Jabon release and therefore the ten year anniversary. This project was somewhat a departure for them in that side one's first cut is very long and is a sound sculpture which tells a story. This harkens back to the first two cassettes which used less rock styled songs and more sound sculpture. The story goes that Billy finds an ancient drum in the Japanese Martian Garden. He immediately feels a compelling alliance with this drum. This leads to a militaristic interest which is satisfied when he grows older by joining the militia. While in the militia, Billy recognizes a deep rooted disgust for most people on the planet. He is overjoyed when he finds himself in the Airborne division about to let loose untold destruction upon the Island of Lost Souls (ie Los Angeles) The carnage that follows is immense, but Billy does not come out unharmed. In fact his plane goes down and he is near death. He is taken to the hospital but he can not be saved. He dies in the end with a smile on his face. Knowing that he was part of the team of soldiers who successfully put an end to the Island of Lost Souls.

The other pieces on this tape are Jabonesque dance music. Certain dance music hot shot in L.A. have been quoted as saying "This stuff is pretty good...you should send it to Wax Trax". It is interesting to note that a single DX7 was used on all these cuts and was not sequenced. All parts were played by hand to an initial drum machine track.

That's been done a thousand times. To open up a new channel or to channel something old into something new...that's what Jabon is. Jabon is dark ambient avant garde disco comedy. ... more
