Ive only just discovered this trio. Wow. Jazz-rock fused with a little psychedelia. Powerful & brilliant. Outstanding musicians. On the cover they state "no synthesisers", so they could be described as sonic contortionists.

Skolnick has a harder edge than Holdsworth, Fripp, Torn, less rock than Beck, less jazz than Rypdal & Aarset, probably closer to Machacek & Henderson but if you like any of these guitarists you should enjoy his work. Manring plays 4, 6 and 10 string basses (to my untrained ears they sound fretless). Fans of Stanley Clarke, Jeff Berlin, Percy Jones, Jaco etc will especially enjoy the contrabass excursions. Alexander on drums is also outstanding & whole album has a frenetic feel even on the slower parts. Although there are many tracks, they all melt into a continuous session. I love it.

Their album, Idiot King is also excellent.

As a post script, trying to define them, maybe describing them as a hardened Brand X for the nineties is the best I can manage.

Manring, Alexander and Skolnick are awesome! 15 Nov. 2001
By "statuseeker" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rating: 9.5 / 10
Tim "Herb" Alexander - Drums (ex-Primus, Laundry)
Alex Skolnick - Guitar (ex-Testament, Savatage, Skolpatrol)
Michael Manring - Bass (no explanation needed)

These players got together on the Manring solo album "Thonk" and decided to recreate the magic of their playing, as a band as Attention Deficit. All three are one the best in their respective fields and they don't let anyone down here. The music can be described as pure experimental at its best. I was blown away from the opening track "ATM" right on through to the final track "Say Hello To My Little Friend"(one of the many references to Scarface). Herb's drumming is great as usual, I think this guy can lay a groove over anything, and I mean ANYTHING! Skolnick shows his influence of the great jazz player John Scofield in numerous places. If you are expecting to hear "Practice What You Preach" revised I would have to say you will be very disappointed. Manring pick up where he left off in "Thonk" and if there is anything sweeter sounding than a Zon bass played by the master himself, I haven't heard it. If your looking for an album that sounds like nothing you have heard before and you love progressive, experimental music, this should be already in your cd collection.

For serious musicians only! 29 Aug. 2002
By B. Bernardini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
On this cd, you really have to understand Michael Manrings,
bass playing and his "bass explorations". Honestly it took
a few listens, but it is a very good cd. The sounds he uses,
are very "inventive" ,with a splash of the late great
Jaco Pastorious(Weather Report). Very interesting cd,"keep
them coming Michael". This CD has some fine guests,
Paul McCanles,of the group OREGON. Its basically Manrings and drummer,and guitar.Like I said."if you are a bass player,
this is a must for a different type of ear candy!!!

A brilliant album!! Give it a try!!! 5 Mar. 2001
By richard from omaha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Criminally overlooked 'super-group' tear it up on their debut CD. Skolnick I'd never heard before, he makes nice use of texture and has a nasty tone as well. Alexander's drums sound absolutely huge, like Bonham on steroids. Manring is just nasty, the fretless harmonics and chord work he employs here are a mini-textbook on the future of bass guitar. For three guys who'd never played together before, they mesh well. Very little noodling and some solid compositions, I hope they get a chance to do this again.
a great album 30 May 2000

A non-lyrics master piece. Great bass lines by Michael Manring, precise drums by Tim Alexander and inspired guitars by Alex Skolnick. This album has atmospheric and improvised songs that shows the talent of these musicians.
Amazing. 19 Jun. 2014

If you don't know who Michael Manring is, then you need to find out. One of the most unique bassists ever to grace our planet in a power trio is a wonderful thing. Tim Alexander is a beast on drums.
