"In obeying the imperative to override the axiomatic contempt for the familiar that has become second nature, Hashimoto's self-released MONZEN II CDR homesteads in a wank-free middle ground both ignored by antiseptic, overqualified pyros and beyond the reach of toxic, entry-level mouth-breathers. The fertile mulch helix of ripened improv by Frank Binke (double-bass, nitrogen), Ronald Schmidt (guitar, phosphate) and Ronny Trocker (tools, potash) wastes no cubics on the usual antinoise bias. Hashimoto's space is dense with curdle. Trespassers will be violated."
