When Fred Frith formed the avant prog power trio he chose to work with two of the New York downtown scene's hottest musicians, Bill Laswell (bass) and Fred Maher (drums).
Right from the outset Massacre was much more than Fred Frith plus rhythm section - Frith was looking for something that would reflect the music heard in New York's clubs, and Maher and Laswell were as steeped in funk and dub reggae as they were in experimental jazz and avant rock.
Massacre also contributed to side 2 of Fred Frith's Speechless album, and numerous bootlegs of their incendiary concerts appeared.

 TrouserPress.com :: Scritti Politti
With venerable producer Arif Mardin, Material drummer Fred Maher and other heavyweights, the entirety of Green's output for the following two years was a 1984 12-inch, which nonetheless established him as a brilliant (if unprolific) pop craftsman.
Recorded and produced in the main with Maher and keyboardist David Gamson but featuring numerous other musicians, the painstakingly well-crafted record is unfailingly pleasant.
Loads of backing singers do their best not to upstage Gartside's wispy voice, but the cushiony cloak of suavely boring, repetitive material is all it takes to thwart his reedy efforts.
