Tracks B1 to B4 were performed in, on, and around the green van in the Pik N Pak parking lot to celebrate the 2nd Annual EL7 St. Patrick's Day Parklinglot Jam.

Track B6 is from when EL7 performed on the Toxic Waste Car, parading though the streets of downtown Houston. The car spewed out trails of toxic waste and smoke, followed by seven barrels of hazardous chemicals. The unbearable noise generated by EL7 made the spectators writhe in pain. This car won best of show in the 1990 annual Art Car Parade. The noise you hear fades in and out as the generator is dying.

All selections performed and recorded live, no overdubs.

Special Thanks to Dave at The Ritz, Ralph at Pik N Pak, Nestor and George Hixson of the Toxic Waste Car.
