Since Niandra and Water finally got a vinyl release, here's hoping this masterpiece gets similar treatment

This was originally withdrawn from sale (along with Niandra LaDes & Usually Just A T-Shirt) because John Frusciante thought it was way below standard, and released it at the time only to buy drugs with... according to a magazine interview I read, anyhow!
Plus I asked him myself when I met him at The Borderline club in London 2001. He was supposedly sober then, but he was waaay out of his skull! =O)

Famously pulled from the shelves when Frusciante sobered up from his heroin and cocaine addiction, this record is essentially a series of prayers to the gods of intoxication. Incredibly powerful songs straight from the mind of a madman- this is quite possibly the greatest musical document of addiction ever recorded. He screams, yelps, sings and smokes his way through one of the most diverse and musically satisfying albums I’ve ever heard. The raw intensity of his voice will make your spine tingle. Within the dementia are some very beautiful songs performed with such intense emotion it’s astounding. It belongs in the canon of crazy psychedelic solo albums like those of Syd Barrett and Daniel Johnston… Highly recommended if you can find it.
