about

We recorded this for Jackass. I don't remember the date, I guess about '94. It never got released, I think Mark just ran out of money. This record has been lost for a long time, but just recently came back out of the dark night (thanks Ned).

Honest to God this is the title that we always intended. (it was the last line from an episode of Murun Buchstansangur)

It was recorded at Steve Mack's studio in London by John Wills (Loop, Hair & Skin Trading Co, Pumajaw). I was really thrilled to be working with John because I was (and am) a huge fan of Loop. We played with Hair & Skin just before this and afterwards were lucky enough to travel to Belgium with him and Pinky Maclure for a show there.

I have very little memory of the sessions, I don't know why we rerecorded Lotus Eater and Bond- I guess we weren't happy with the Single versions.
