"Here's one that clearly aimed at springboarding the artists, Adam Gates and John Baccigaluppi, at a guest spot on William Buckley's "Firing Line", maybe the April Fools edition. Over a polyrhythmic bed that sounds like two King Crimson tracks laid on top of one another, the heart of this offering is a desultory spoken-word amble through a series of subjects only brave men would dare raise on a record. Red-hot topics like soap operas, girlfriend abuse, sexual forbearance and it's relation to Buddy Ebsen, Ronald Reagan and his inability to...well, I'll just let them tell it. I don't even mind that it doesn't rhyme."

Multiple sources describe Gates as having filled in on bass with Blind Illusion after Les Claypool left the band during a tour in either 1987 or 1988. Sources conflict. There is YouTube footage of a Blind Illusion show in New York City on September 24, 1998 that features Les, so presumably Adam replaced him after that...
