Sir Muthaship is only the latest vehicle of reliably seasick sea-captain Pete Hope. A sweated hand upon the 4-track, he guides the unmarked sloop from one steaming, disreputable port to another by wan moonlight. What emerges when the shore-haze finally lifts is a cassette of Ten Blues, funny little boogies that must describe what the cybernetics are up to in the lamp-lit driftwood shacks that lean seaward out of the shadowed mangroves. A busy little series of shakes, for when shakin' is the quickest way out. A series of stuttering revolutions that put the "fun" in "malfunction." Presented on a tar-black cassette.
