“The cross-pollination of punk and improvised music has opened various new avenues of exploration..Lozenge has charted a similarly twisted path that leads through art rock and the territory inhabited by Japanese eclectic extremists the Boredoms and Omoide Hatoba… Doozy is a messy, frenetic, supercharged pack of tracks… Bruckmann, Johnson, and saxophonist and electric violist John Robbins make an effectively and purposefully clunky front line, barreling through occasional odd meters, fuzzy garage riffs, and menacing prog-punk pronouncements…” (John Corbett, Chicago Reader)
