AllMusic Review by

The split between Steak From Delta and The Stars at My Desk is only available on vinyl. The bands express themselves for seven minutes on one side of the nice little rose-red disc. Steak From Delta explores the way that was opened by people such as Dèche Dans Face, Doo Rag, and other unhinged bands, playing their crazy (self-claimed) munk rock consisting of loud, out-of-tune guitars, roaring vocals, bugle solos, and perfect drum beats. Insanity is also the watchword on the other side, but the Stars at My Desk's compositions are of the intimate kind. The guy has been playing his naïve and unstructured folk songs since 1995, and recorded about 15 homemade tapes (issued on his own micro-label, Busted) and two other split 7"s (one with TG, the other with Herman Düne). It seems like his lo-fi only waits for a Kurt Cobain to wear a the Stars at My Desk shirt on a TV show to invade airwaves -- as happened with Daniel Johnston.
