Notes

Studies in Meditation and Evisceration
Volume One

First edition of 200 copies, contains five CDs in individual sleeves, together with a signed 4-page booklet, packaged in a custom box.

Disc One
Tracks 1, 2, 4, 5 and 13 were recorded in 2007 for "Songs From A Sewer Of Dreams" 4LP (Vinyl-On-Demand, 2007).
Track 6 captures Joey and company improvising live in Rostock, Germany.
Track 7-12 were recorded a while back, inspired by The Locust and Hellnation.

Disc Two
Tracks 1 and 3 are outtakes from the 1983 recordings for "Knees and Bones" which were found in a dusty closet a few years ago. These recordings also appeared on the "Sewer..." box.
Track 2 recorded at the Rat in Boston, 1977, was a one off, thrown-together gig featuring the inimitable Jack Salerno on vocal. Drunk and without any rehearsal or idea of what we might play, a group of summer friends took the stage for 40 horrific minutes. Pure trash, but great fun at the time. Immature, indeed.
Track 4 and 5 are recent improvisations, live at Tonic during 2004, under the guise of The Breastfed Yak.
Tracks 6 and 7 are outtakes from the sessions that would produce the sole Breastfed Yak CD - recorded in 2007.
Track 8, from 1978, represents my first attempts at experimental music and is a personal favorite - recorded as a one-off with friends in Boston that summer.
Tracks 10 and 11 represent the first appearance of Joe Papa, the new vocalist fronting a new, expanded line up of the group. We did one gig then broke up. This was also Chris' first appearance as well.

Disc Three
Please make note that the group has nothing to do with creating these titles... They were applied to the tracks by the label owner who issued the "Controlled Bleeding" cassette (Inner-X, 1984).

Disc Four
Recorded between 1983-1985, this material was re-mastered from the original tape which contained an extra 12 minutes of noise that did not appear on the actual "Shitslipper" C-60 (Inner-X, 1985) release. Joe Papa returns for the first time since the collapse of the previous "Live at Heckle and Jekyll's" line up. We are also experimenting with tape speeds and multi-tracking for the first time. For the extreme music listeners, this stuff might have indicated the beginning of the end for us... Parts of "Shitslipper" still sound okay to me, but in truth, a lot of this stuff sounds like fucking about, the best segments of this release were used on our second album "Body Samples", which really marked the end of our pure noise experiments.

Disc Five
Unreleased noise work and extreme remixes; XXX first tape / Shitslipper sessions.
The first several selections here were discovered on an ancient cassette buried in a bag full of junk dwelling in the corner of my basement, as I was searching master tapes of our XXX material. Some of these tracks appeared elsewhere in different form, but for the most part they remain unheard.
The rest of this disc contains power-remixes of some of the XXX material.
