It would be all too easy for this recording to be simply a novelty, its value lying in Ken Butler 's unique creations - instruments made out of hammers, shovels, golf clubs, etc. Fortunately, these homemade instruments are actually playable, and Butler is joined by some excellent musicians, including Paradox Trio leader Matt Darriau. This release stands up to repeated listens better than the Gravikords, Whirlies & Pyrophones compilation, in which the actual music is secondary to the documentation of the created instruments.

Kenneth Lee "Ken" Butler (born August 3, 1948) is an artist and musician, as well as an experimental musical instrument builder. His Hybrid musical instruments and other artworks explore the interaction and transformation of common and uncommon objects, altered images, sounds and silence.
