Beneath the usual lovely psychedelic artwork on the cover of Panzer Division Lou Reed lurks Sunroof’s most explosive and assaultive record ever. The key track here in the Sunroof! evolution is the opening “Slew Plateaus #1,” with Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra) on guitar and John Moloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man) on drums. This live shot of electricity gradually ramps up from Matt Bower and Mick Flower’s dueling guitars to when Moloney’s drums come crashing in after about six minutes, leading to a furious crescendo that lasts for the remainder of the 19 minute track. “Slew Plateaus #2” is a lengthy collaboration with underground gadabout Mattin, whose previous collabs with Tony Conrad, Bruce Russell, Eddie Prevost et al hopefully prepared him for the MB wrecking ball which is delivered here. The other two cuts are absolutely blistering demolition work, which in spite of their visceral impact, reach a state of zen-like stasis after a couple of minutes, ala the best of MB’s work with Hototogisu.
