came into the Quixotic fold through Chad (second from left), who had
engineered several Airlines sessions at Excello Studios in
Brooklyn and who had also played bass briefly with the Airlines. This
was definitely the heaviest slab of vinyl we ever put out, and it
had the most expensive cover art to print! But it was all worth it
as Halcion went on to some measure of fame. Check out Jason Frangos'
webpage as he has been busy--and Dorit's as well(she's now known as
the "Theremin Queen of New York City"!)
(#97 March 1994, Eddie Shore)
"Driven by the powerful guitar playing of Chad Swanberg and the
equally powerful voice of Dorit Chrysler, Halcion is a pleasant surprise.
Both songs are good; guitars float and sting, the rhythm section is
solid and the singer rules."
"Making a noise that would be considered bordering on the limits
of what is bearable even by New York standards, Halcion mix
up heavy guitar sounds with lyric songs. Odd harmonic passages are
swallowed easily by whirlwind like rhythms, spiked with throaty screams,
giving way to a subtle, eloquent whisper and all that produces a haunting,
dangerously sensual energy. Halcion are the proverbial calm
before the storm which launches you into the stratosphere."
