"I got a message the other day from Hugh Hopper's wife Christine. She reported that since Hugh's passing, she's been struggling with finances. Of course she's also struggling emotionally, as she misses him terribly, but the gist of her message was a call for financial help. She recalled that Hugh told her that if she ran into trouble, to ask their friends for help. So she did. In response, John Roulat, Steve Feigenbaum, and I decided to produce a limited edition benefit CD, 'The Gift Of Purpose'. We are splitting the manufacturing costs and donating the gross income to Christine. Steve has already wired her some money in advance. It will be a Cuneiform Record. The bulk of the benefit CD will be a beautifully recorded Bone concert that we did at Orion Sound in Baltimore. There is also a bonus track by myself, John, Colin Marston (Behold....the Arctopus), Daevid Allen (who contributed a beautiful vocal track), and Yves Duboin (Doctor Nerve).
It will be in digipak format, with cover design by Bill Ellsworth (who does Cuneiform Records). So it'll look and sound very, very good. I hope you can support this project!" - Nick Didkovsky

This fabulous all-star progressive power trio features Nick Didkovsky (from Dr. Nerve) on lead guitar, Hugh Hopper (Canterbury fuzz-bass legend for Soft Machine & Isotope, etc.) and John Roulat (Forever Einstein) on drums & percussion. ...wicked slide guitar...great, bent, hard rockin' nastiness... screaming, demon guitars ... thick, throbbing bass ... great tribal drums and percussion. Charming in a twisted sort of way" - Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
