There is little doubt the brothers Pasquini and Stefano Costantini knew exactly what they were getting into when Deniz Tek asked them to back him on a tour. During their decade in A-10, described by some as "the most brutal punk rock band in existence", they had toured extensively with The Deniz Tek Group's "Outside" lineup. Deniz chose to turn the intensity up even more, and invited Scott Morgan to come along for a tour of France and Italy, rounding out the three guitar line up.
The set for the tour and the resulting album draws from both Deniz and Scott's past work, as well as that of fellow Michigan bands The MC5 and Stooges. The album's opening blast of Future Now, from the MC5's final album, transforms the song into a driving blues shouter. Electrophonic Tonic finds the band picking up speed on this flashback to Scott's R&B roots. Blood From A Stone and Give It Up originally appeared on Outside, considered by many to be the best solo release from the Iceman.
Shellback and Agua Caliente from the Equinox album take on new life with the A-10 rhythm section in charge.
