The Lizards, led by neo-saxman John Lurie, were best known for their outsider approach to bop. This is perhaps their best work, filled with humor and a solid melodic sensibility. Marc Ribot's angular guitar and the complement of Evan Lurie's piano make the disc a particular delight. Madhouse jazz for the unhinged.

For the Voice of Chunk sessions, Bowne played a Pearl GLX series kit with maple shells featuring 8″, 12″, 13″, 14″, and 16″ toms, a 22″ bass drum, and a Pearl S-414D chrome-covered steel free-floating snare drum. He used a Pearl P-750 or P-880TW double bass drum pedal, and his cymbals included a 20″ Paiste 2002 ride, 16″ and 18″ Paiste thin crashes, an 8″ Paiste splash, 14″ Paiste and A Zildjian hihat sets, and an old Zildjian China with a chunk sawed out of the edge, which was salvaged from the garbage at Matrix Rehearsal Studios. Bowne recorded the Iggy Pop album Party and then right before a tour opening for the Rolling Stones, he gave notice. I loved, loved playing his music, but I needed to play more and different music. The Lounge Lizards had been broken up for about a year before they reformed in 1982. Leader and saxophonist John Lurie was looking for musicians.
