This release used samples from the '80s classic "Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight" by Dominatrix. We changed the title to Dominatricks since we also used various porn samples throughout the recording. Jim Hopkins did a remix because of the previous partnership with Twitch Remix Service in the early '90s. Jon Druckman's Bass Kittens was picked as a remix since he was Mike Wertheim's roomate during the Twitch years. Mike was a founder of Twitch along with Jim and Randall. The other two mixes came from the boys at Casa Del Soul Record/Denver area remixers. DJ Sense owned the store in Denver that was the #1 shop for underground record. A heavy snowfall collapsed the store's roof and now the shop is just a memory. But Sense's remix lives on this release.

It was very hard to get the rights to use the Dominatrix samples. We paid $1500 to the original writer/publisher of the track. He personally wasn't thrilled with the recording but took the money.

This is the only release by Spanky. Spanky's producers changed their name to Tristraum and partnered with a Denver area vocalist to release a ten-song album titled "Gray". Randall then joined synthpop band Eloquent with Steven Cochran. Twitch Recordings is still operating out of San Francisco.
