yep, and another one - I usually dont do this, but ya gotta warn people about crap like this. Plain should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.This pressing is pretty much good for nothing apart from saying that you have California on vinyl. There is no way on Earth i will get anything with their name related to it again - feel like snapping it in half!
Low volume, shit sound, blurry jpg artwork - this one's got it all!

I total Pattonfest but still a great album. You can tell that Patton was taking over the band (which led to them breaking up). Patton fans will be masturbating all over this one, but even Patton haters (like me) will appreciate this if they're into Bungle. A brilliant swansong from the world's greatest band!
