An amazing quartet featuring the late Tom Cora on cello (Skeleton Crew), Phil Minton on vocals, Luc Ex (The Ex) on guitar and Michael Vatcher (Honsinger/Ex/Zorn) on drums. Roof collapsed with the passing of Tom Cora, taking on Veryan Weston and renaming themselves 4Walls. As great as that band is, Roof was the real deal, an inspired band reaching for new creative breakthroughs. This studio album (Trace is the complimentary live album) includes works derived from Skeleton Crew melodies, and a reworking of Harry Partch's "The Letter." Excellent, challenging music.
