Following up on the split CD w/ Petit Mal and the Zenflesh comp (and a handful of cassette only releases), this is TKP's proper solo debut.
Recorded in the Studio Amduscias closet in Sacramento around 95-96.

"after the crash though, tkp’s ‘slice’ comes into its own. the painful, numbing screech of metal, the knowledge that everything has gone dreadfully wrong, the realization of violent death, the sudden silence, the bloodied bodies. next up, ‘mad dog’ itself, where you can actually hear the police car sirens coming towards you through a searing mist of agony. then onto ‘envy’, the sound of a heavy rainfall from a baleful sky… the music of swirling, droning tones and sub-tones is weird, melancholy, difficult – at times even beautiful. the production is exquisite, the textures subtly layered, the imagination inspired. think metal machine music remixed by mr. richard aphex in his analogue bubblebath. think main, think schutze, think koner, think bowery electric. think tangerine dream doing alpha centauri. these aren’t ‘songs’ of course: there’s no tunes, no melodies, no verse-verse-chorus-verse. good job too, there’s too many songs in this sick old world of ours…" - stewart gott, silencer
"did i miss something? where has this band been? this is like being forced into sleep therapy, strapped down to the bed, having electrodes attached to your head, being injected with some new brand of psychotropic and having the results set to music. the bands history is unknown to me - i can only go on what i hear. that is: older english influence such as organum and nurse with wound mixed with the isolationist tone of lull and mick harris' other work, maybe a touch of laswell too. this one drifts in and out of your consciousness until it spreads in your brain like virus. i HAVE to listen to it now, i have no choice." - your flesh #37

"iterating what distinguishes Turk Knifes Pope from their peers would have to begin with the sonics themselves, which are by turns buttery rich and tartly astringent, febrile with harmonic excitation, warmly enveloping (if emotionally unsettling) and beautifully produced with strafed layers of harmonium wheeze, string scrape and electronic burr rippling across the cilia of your ear canals like the sexiest sandpaper ever." - mutant sounds
