“…Then there are other other bands that take a far-fetched musical idea (like mayhem, for instance), aggressively fart around with it for a few months, play about two live gigs, break up, disappear and then a year later, when individual band members may already have tenure in hell for all anyone knows, hawk up a gob of indispensable racket such as Plenum – which, besides being a band-described “mannerist exercise in manic self-deprecation,” is also the greatest example of unaffected sonic artiness to see daylight in Houston since I can’t remember when.” (Brad Tyer, Houston Press)
