The accumulation of Male Sexual Energy is the m.o. for this record. I don't know, it's got a sword fight in it tho.
I'm a freshman at art school and I've just taken my first tab. I'm at my friends place looking through her records asking what's what. Things like Bauhaus, Front 242, Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Laibach; it's 1989 and we're tripping trying to find something to sit back and listen to. She pulls this out, I try to read it. She puts it on and lights some candles and incense and turns it up. We sit back and listen. Isn't this cool? wow, I must've listened to this thing 4 times. Maddening. she got bored and left. I was mad for it and loved the show the candles put on for me when I played it.
the b-side is blank and won't make any sound unless your gouge it and scrape it up. There is the slight chance the needle will head for the label tho, so keep your ears open.
