According to the liner notes to the Survival Unit II album, the first Survival Unit was a system of tapes McPhee used when his backing musicians didn't show up for a gig. There's a track with tapes on the Survival Unit II album. Don't know if there's any real connection to the Lonberg-Holm/Zerang group.


Hi Darcy - sorry I missed your question the first time through. Yes, absolutely, McPhee has been brought into the Chicago fold by Vandermark (he also did a duo album with Hamid Drake), and thus his connection with players like Fred Lonberg-Holm and Zerang.
