If "Tour" had documented TLASILA 3's ambivalent, woozily galvanic September 2000 careen around four American cities (New York, Providence, Philadelphia, and Athens, GA), then this blurb might have concluded with the following haigographic pustule: "their disembodied performances swept screw clamps from parched factory floors."
