One of my all-time favorite Fax discs. The DSN track is a live performance of "Earth to Infinity" -- reminds me a lot of the way the Orb do live tracks, without their need to back everything up with a 400 pound kick-drum. Lots of added samples and whacky sounds seem to be added for a spontaneous feel. A little added didgeridoo and blunted drum lines indicate that Part 1 is definite mellow time. This gets bogged down, but then Part 2 starts up with some added tabla playing, a nice bass line that gets tweaked throughout the piece and some nice floaty synths in the background that drift from side to side. The last 5 minutes are the best, so stick around! Funk music for the hashish bar on Mars. Not a particularly strong live outing compared to "Traffic", imo, but the disc is definitely worth owning for this and the other tracks (Who the hell is Mario Hana?! And "Air - You - Coda" is just friggin' divine!).
