Black Flag - The Process of Weeding Out EP

Released : September 1985
Recorded : March 1985
Genre : Hardcore, free jazz, instrumental, punk jazz
Length : 26:28
Label : SST
Producer : Greg Ginn, Bill Stevenson, David Tarling

Certainly not for the faint of heart, Black Flag's instrumental work may seem to the naked ear to be atonal and uncomfortable, but there is a method to the madness. The Process of Weeding Out is an interesting document of Greg Ginn's development from high-speed guitar "sculptor" to one of the few punk artists to embrace 12-tone experimental music. A nice companion piece to the instrumental work on Family Man, but fans looking for strict hardcore should stick to the band's earlier work.
