“Chadbourne is particularly sensitive to sensations of depth created by his sound sources and achieves many a superb jump from vista to close-up… paradoxically, it’s the continual disorientation and surprise of the segues that gives Jungle Cookies coherence and character. The whole two-hour thing has an easy flow to it… programmed by someone wth a keen ear for surprise.” Ben Watson, Honesty is Explosive!
“Fascinating travelogue of vivid metaphor.” Tom Schulte, Outsight. This rotated on WFMU and KRUZ, and made the Downtown Music Gallery’s “Best of” list for 1998.
