Lathe-cut edition of 30.
Recorded May 3, 2010, Loop Line, Tokyo
"Lathe-cut documentation of the soundcheck preceding the actual concert the trio played, during Hoffman's 2010 tour of Japan. Hard to tell what's intentional, what's just bleed-through from somewhere else - indeed, difficult to figure what the hell is going on at all. People talk, machines gurgle, random events predominate, but somehow it manages (perhaps only because it was documented) to sound pretty cool and nearly coherent. A fascinating document, both compelling and perverse."
