"UNMANNED SHIP are active stoners. The difference between active stoners and lazy stoners is obvious. The active ones do cool shit while they’re baked and the lazy ones do lame shit. Unmanned Ship stay busy as bees in Chicago. One of the rad things the Unmanned Ship dudes do is make fucking killer instrumental rock jams. The three of ‘em concoct quite a hypnotic brew. It’s the kind of bubbly, dark, sweet porter I bee nectar fermenting into at the end of summer under less honey-friendly conditions. Coincidentally, their brand of stoner rock has the geometric and psychedelic qualities of a honeycomb. These grooves are repetitive and techincial, but never too flashy and by no means boring. A grounded rhythm section is nicely complemented by hydrodynamic guitar lines and extraterrestrial effects. Not exactly what I’d deem space rock, but a bit arthropodic to be sure. In fact, this whole record would score an Apoidean documentary quite nicely. With the majority of the footage shot within the hive and featuring a substantial amount of bee carnage of course, this would make the PERFECT soundtrack to a Planet Earth chapter on bee fights. I’d buy that for a dollar! This hyper limited, hand-screened, hand-numbered LP full of heavy, buzzing, intoxicating rock is HIGH-ly recommended for stoned drones. The Queen would never approve, but fuck that bitch—she’s fucking all of us."—Lance Barresi (Permanent Records) Limited to 300 copies with silkscreened jackets.
