- this was the very first recording i made, even before i released Venom8888-Level 8888 on Dtrash Records in 2000. the year was 1999 and i had been in many bands, experimental, no wave, neo psychedelic, hardcore, starting out in 1982...So after 17 years of writing, recording and performing i decided to call it quits. i smashed my acoustic guitar and threw it out. I sold my 4 track recorder,bass, fx pedals, etc to a friend i had at the time and walked away. I felt burnt out. Then a week later i heard allec empire and ATR! suddenly over night digital hardcore reinvigorated me! I went back to that & borrowed back my gear, armed with an analog answering machine loop tape as my poor mans sampler, and stolen samples i made THEFTCORE. a couple of months went by while bought new trashy gear and VENOM8888 was born. However, i sat on this initial recording for years before i put it out on sickmode. Its still my favorite after 21 years later. Enjoy!---V. Ketch 7/19/20
