"Jay and Gary Leavitt, along with Bobby Herne, made their first musical rumblings in 1966 as the Cobras, releasing the New England garage classic I Wanna Be Your Lover/Instant Heartache.  Fast-forward to 1970 and the brothers, joined by Ralph Mazotta (ex-Lazy Smoke) and Harold Perino Jr. (aka Maris), transformed into the hard psychedelic aggro Euclid, signed to Bob Thieles Flying Dutchman subsidiary Amsterdam and were one of the few (only?) rock releases on either label (a notable exception being the rare Minx soundtrack by The Cyrkle). Herne, manning the producers chair (a role he would later repeat for The Shaggs Philosophy Of The World LP), created a bad trip spiked with backwards tape effects, darkly-phrased vocals, all instruments set to pummel and an album title certainly eligible for the truth in advertising award!  Tread carefully dear listener, as Gary, Bobby, Maris and Bob have all passed on due to various circumstances over the years..." - Skyf Zol.

"Maximum (kinda rhymes with Eruptum) fuzz and flailing drums hammered into shape by three hairy gents from Yugoslavia displaced to The Netherlands, first issued on the private Killroy label in 1973. Legend, rumor and speculation surrounds many of the recording details - were they itinerant mineworkers hoping to blow off some steam, or maybe they just couldnt find a decent recording studio in their homeland?  And what twisted tale does the cover art depict, so inflammatory the LP was supposedly banned upon original release?  There is no mystery, however, about the trios raw power or surprising command of the English language - prepare to bleed!" - Skyf Zol.
