Radium is regarded as Table Of The Elements' rock offshoot, although they do write that in inverted commas (that's 'rock', in case you were wondering what that would look like). The label is given a showcase by this eight-track LP, calling upon Jonathan Kane, Megafaun, Ateleia, Collections Of Colonies of Bees and Neptune among others. Rhys Chatham, that most iconic of Radium artists gets the album underway with an untitled piece from 1986, featuring an arsenal of four guitars, a bass and drums. Under the banner of 'rock' comes much in the way of experimentation, from Megafaun's exotic folk explorations to Neptune's metallic punishment. If the more vehemently avant-rock aspects get a bit much for you, Collections Of Colonies of Bees permit a certain amount of post-rock accessibility, and the album's none the worse off for that.
