2 stars This EP contains an outtake from Bass Communion's album "Molotov and Haze". Steven Wilson was interested in Freiband's record label called My Little Label which specialized in archival and outtake recordings and so he gave this to Freiband to release on a 3" CDR to which Freiband added a remix of the track. The EP was added to the vinyl edition of "Molotov and Haze" as a10" disc.

The first track is the 12 minute original outtake. It is a drone with other tones fading in and out, a study in minimalism as is the case with all of the Bass Communion works. This one is not very interesting however in that not much happens and nothing develops here. There is no percussion, only the lonely sounds of sparseness which eventually fades into barely discernible noises. "Scherven" is the remix which basically keeps the drone in an electronic sense and leaves out the other tones altogether, so this is even less interesting as the first. I do enjoy Bass Communion's work, but this one is just not interesting enough for me. If you are interested, you should get the vinyl edition of "Molotov and Haze" as at least you will have the music from that album to fall back on.
