1986 saw the second release of the L/C/M - trio project under the name MELTABLE SNAPS IT, titled "Points Blank". The list of instruments played by the musicians is as impressive as the list of guests they invited for their second album - all (now) well-known for their uncompromising musical views and visions. The music could be globally categorized as modern improvised music, as it lacks the usual mock seriousness and has nothing to do with pure demonstration of sound research techniques. By connecting unusual and strange compositions (John Zorns "Rugby"), sharp changes of acoustic and electronic sounds, and "beats" with Christian Marclay, the trio creates a contemporary music full of discipline and humor - a music that hasn't lost any of its impact over the years.

"...this music jumps out at you; the trio throw themselves
at their instruments with a reckless sense of abandon... "Meltable Snaps
It" can be recommended to anyone who enjoys rude and uninhibited interplay."
"One must be ready to immerse himself into the very thought
processes through which this music evolves. The effort will give the listener
the most interesting displacement to another world."
(Michael Martin, Downtown Review)
