"In a faraway land, where crystalline car dealerships and stately drive-thru slop shops stood immaculate, a band of sagacious, chemically-altered teaheads huddled in a vacant post office in a tent that was left there from the time of the Sumerians. This was in Hamilton, Ontario - early 90s... Anyway, the ceiling of the tent was deep space; constellations became their pets and unnamed planets became their personal pan pizzas... It was there that they met God, it was all Blueberry shaped non-sequiters and top-heavy answers, enough to cave in the cab of a cube-van. Upon stumbling out of the now fog-encumbered tent their heads were weighted down by the incessant drone of the spheres, a tinnitus-like unceasing that clouded their perception. With nothing else to help with this cochlear roar they harmonized, like a ragtag assembly of Beached Boys with an orphic caveman stomp that matched the brutal profoundness of the soul. And here it is - the selected works of Thee Gnostics, a band that ceaselessly put petals on wahwah pedals in the tradition of Hawkwind and the 13th Floor Elevators. This is a serious INSTANT CLASSIC. Double cassettes come with a 48 page silkscreened/photocopied fanzine-style booklet, with re-appropriated poster art and with liners by Bruce Mowat. " -Beniffer Editions.
