This, the latest offering from Mia Throat’s three-man septet, is the most ambitious project yet undertaken by the former Bacchus Marsh featherweight champion and butchery apprentice.

The educated ear will descry influences as diverse and irrelevant as the Marquis de Sade, Felonius “Chip” Munk and the Duke of Wellington.

Amidst the nearly 20 hours of challenging compositional “entities”, as Throat terms the 100s of pieces, Gomez Ansell’s solos on chainsaw stand out as discrete diaphanous droplets against Throat’s sturdy vocalese yodelling and Grindell-Phase Hollenwurst Krumperstein’s machine-gun-like 32nd notes on electric artillery.

This 16-CD set will not be to everybody’s liking; but, for those who can stay with it through to the end, the novelty of the experience is undoubtedly worth the irreparable damage to your hearing.

Salvation Navy xylophonist Dave Brucker said of this work: “Absolutely unprecedented. I will be speaking with my solicitor.”
