"Minimal drone guitar music from the New Zealand underground, this obscure CD by K-Group is a dark exploration of subtle drones and electric hum in the vein of Gate and the Dead C, and is an off-shoot solo outing from Surface of the Earth guitarist Paul Toohey. Recorded in an abandoned factory, the ambient drones racked up by guitar and electronics create a textural resemblance to rock music stripped of all content. Leaving only a dust-trail of electricity and humming tones behind, the guitarist works up a cloud of slow-motion feedback, which brings to mind the Hafler Trio and Loren Mazzacane Conners." [Dean McFarlane, Allmusic]
