Description by Muzai Records:

"Spotlight On The Mood is a conglomerate of machines; from old Panasonic drum machines to reel-to-reel tapes committing one-take vocals to an 8-track Tascam tape multi-studio.

Those events that took place in an undisclosed location (possibly in the South Pacific) were one-take performances with no overdubbing whatsoever. It's what Colonel Troutman describes as the “Troutman Mind Meld”, mixed with a recently adopted “Balance of Terror writing style” . ”

“Although,” Troutman reveals, “you must be extremely careful when you combine the Troutman Mind Meld with the Balance of Terror. It's very unstable.”

Basing the majority of the lyrical content from '80s classic Rambo: First Blood, with the occasional paraphrasing or changing the titular hero's name to “Salad” may add to the ridiculous nature of the EP – but perhaps it's a more cleverly devised critique of how overly serious music can get at times.

It was either Rambo: First Blood or Hot Shots! Part Deux. We're thankful Rambo edged it.

Spotlight On The Mood is an exercise in abstract excesses; be it lyrically, conceptually and / or sonically. It prides itself on being an oddity that sometimes fits the noise-rock archetype, sometimes musique concrete, sometimes digital hardcore. "
