Garbage on Broadway, DREXEL TRIANGLE, April 25, 1980 - by Frank Chmielewski (Philadelphia)
"TEST, Bomis Prendin (Artifacts) - This 10-inch flexi-disc is not just for those finding pleasure in destroying the mental equilibrium of their "normal" friends with a little avant-garde. This is because it will play games even with minds almost immune to torment. The first song on this eleven song E.P., "Rastamunkies", is ska-cum-noise, and even has melody, maybe even enough to pass as a single. The rest of the songs(?) are filled with noises, beeps, machine noises, telephone-sounding voice-overs, anti-capitalistic speeches, etc. But "Umbral Vectors" is great machine noise, highly organized, and "Auto-acupuncture" is superb noise, superbly organized. And for total irony, you cannot smash a flexi-disc if it drives you crazy. (Helpful hint for people whose ears are afraid of risk-taking: you can cut it with scissors.)"
