"Open Mouth, O' Wisp" is GORGE TRIO's magnum opus - 22 tracks of fragmented genius, running the gamut from Harry Pussy to Harry Partch - meticulously constructed over a three-year period. With a palette as effectual and varied as the Sun City Girls, and a language as undeniably singular as Lightning Bolt's, "Open Mouth, O Wisp" revels in the fact that anything is possible. An ambitious statement delivered with virtuosity and conviction... a special delivery to those souls with a burning passion for tomorrow today.
GORGE TRIO is comprised of 3/4th's of the critically acclaimed COLOSSAMITE, which disbanded in 1998, and is survived by three releases on SKiN GRAFT. GORGE TRIO includes current members of DEERHOOF, The FLYING LUTTENBACHERS, NATURAL DREAMERS, and former members of underground pioneers ICEBURN and SICBAY.
