From the recording Sampler

"The Clash once had an album called Combat Rock, but William A. Thompson’s combat music called Baghdad Music Journal (2006) was hardly a figurative statement; it was in fact the first record made and released from a war zone. Back home in New Orleans after being called up to service as a US Army counter intelligence agent in the Iraq War, Thompson (keyboards, laptop) got together with fellow Crescent City musicians Simon Lott (drums, effects), Chris Alford (guitar, effects) and James Singleton (bass, spoken word, effects) construct and issue a follow up CD, Syntaxis. As before, the music is officially credited to William A. Thompson IV’s initials, WATIV." -S. Victor Aaron
