Notes

The first document of irr.'s sparce live activity, released in 2008 by errata in excelsis. Includes excerpts from shows #5-#10 (leaving out #9) taking place primarily between 2005 and 2006, with a line-up that was variously augmented by R K Faulhaber, John & Greg Scharpen, Jim Haynes (of Coelacanth), Steven Stapleton (of Nurse With Wound), and William Davison & Sherri Lynn Higgins (of Six Heads/Songs of the New Erotics/the Toronto Recordist group). The collection also includes an excerpt from the Nurse With Wound performance in Portugal in 2007 -- the only occasion of M S Waldron providing vocals for 'Dead Side of the Moon'.<br>
