Amen, Clif. The album is one for the ages and a "legacy installment" or us who have been fans for decades. And it has been sounding better with each repeated listen. Thanks for still bringing the defiance!

Packaged in the size of a standard CD jewel case but the style of a DVD case. First packaging like this that I've ever seen.

What I find interesting is that "The Nose Demo" is still not listed - and I have never seen photos of it online. Would love if someone who actually has it could take the time to create a listing. Until then I have a theory that it might not have been ... See full review

Virtually all copies had some issue with the back cover (tray) insert that caused them to be "wavy".

This has been reissued on vinyl. For sale on the merch table during Son Volt's current tour.

Now that I have two different copies of this release, I have discovered that the cover / "sleeve" exists both on some kind of textured cardstock paper and on a standard photocopied paper.

I totally agree !!! Demos and cassette-only releases like this spend too much time in inaccessible purgatory.

"Dancing Song" is actually the name of a label, that co-released this cassette with Vermin Scum.

This is not a bootleg! This demo tape is the one and only release by the band. I got mine directly from them in 1990. I don't how the term "unofficial release" got into the listing... ?

I still have correspondence from the label head (from around the time I mail ordered this original) that says the pressing was 500. It may have also been stated in early zine ads.

Thanks for the info! I mail ordered my vinyl copy from Simple Machines as soon as I saw their distro catalog listing of it (late 1992 or early '93). At that point all they needed to do was name drop Slint and Rodan and I was in. 🤓 I got the reissued ... See full review

Anyone know how many of this version were made? Thanks.

Mindblowing tour de force from these longtime kindred Sound Souls. You will be suspended and swirled in otherworldly sonic spaces... I got my copy of this most limited version direct from my old friend Eric Wood. The label did offer it - but sold out ... See full review

Of course the current listings and sales stats are absurd. An indie icon made the most brilliant marketing move of all time - put a limited product out there and have the poor souls who received one and chose to sell it bear the onus of "selling out". ... See full review

Hi! I never heard about "Nelsh" being the release name, but it seems to make sense. I am a fan in the U.S., and just a couple days ago scored a beautiful original Flying Nun cassette copy of this release. Totally agree about the bogus Amazon discs. I ... See full review

Thank you Smithsnerd! Always love positive comments on here. Power droid a.k.a. "Gonk droid" was one of the first figures I ever got - in the late 70's! I was a Star Wars nerd years before I became a music collector. 🤓

Red label version rules! Andy Strachan from DYS plays 2nd guitar on this release! I remember seeing this one at Newbury Comics in 1990 and passing on it... (Din't know anything about the band) Very glad to finally have it in the collection.

I would love an original copy of that demo. Wasn't it called "I Want Some Life"?

Does ANYONE know if they recorded/released a demo? I got this EP by mail (after a long wait) when it came out, and have always wondered.

You have quite a commodity there. With all the cassette mania these days, I am sure it is the preferred format. (And of course it's the original version of this release.)

Very interesting... This is an "unofficial" release, yet Dcgs has not banned it from being sold.

It looks like a hype sticker. I found a new sealed one recently from a U.S. mail order service, but it doesn't have this description on the front. My guess is if it's a hype sticker, they did not put one on all copies. I never read or heard anywhere ... See full review

The Europe version of the CD is the one to get. Still comes sealed with the stickers on the outside, but also has a massive beautiful 24-page booklet!

Clearly you didn't do much research. I was not referring to the Rise Above/Music Cartel CD from 1999. I'm talking about the beige/brown illustrated cover 1998 CD, the first ever released version of this album - which is what this listing depicts. The ... See full review

They also had a 1988 demo, with 5 songs I believe. Still have mine I ordered from Mike in the early days of New Age Records.

Ex-members of Philly indie band Kimbashing. Their debut was a 1999 CD on Plot Twist Records titled "45:00". I caught them playing with Haywood in late 1996 at Ulana's Downtown Rock Lounge in Philly.

Incredibly underrated record. These guys combined a sort of post-punk underground rock with the creativity and urgency of some of the better progressive hardcore bands of the day. Do yourself a favor and own it!

If you have ever liked anything else these guys did (including the Suburban Death Trip LP), you need this insanely rare tape!!!

Something is definitely going on - and apparently has been for quite a while with this release. Over at least 6 years time, I have NEVER seen this record listed here for less than $30.00. I bought "Pick-Up Summer" in 1992 but could never find this ... See full review

I traced my money order back in the day, and sure enough he had gotten it and cashed it. I can only hope karma has proportionately taken care of him. I looked him up on FB a couple years ago. He was running a book shop somewhere in NYC.

Holy shit - I had forgotten about this cover. Hands down the most insanely graphic comic illustration I've ever seen on any recorded material. And I find it interesting that Dcgs will ban "unofficial" releases but is okay with this...

I'm getting really tired of this elitist thing of pressing like 100 LP's and/or cassettes, and then just having the recording available as a file. Look at how many people on here have shown they want the physical format... The market is there!

Epitaph does suck! I have no clue why they went with that label. I tried to navigate the site like two months ago for info on vinyl pre-orders, and gave up because it was just showing CD package deals. And when I looked for contact info, there was ... See full review

Too many people (especially on here) refer to lower quality black vinyl as "translucent brown" as if it were some special colored variant. It's not - it's black!

How does this release not seem to be anywhere near as rare/valuable as the first CD EP? Did they make a ton more of them? And because it was distributed by Revelation? I thought I really scored when I found mine brand new in a store in summer '93...

My copy came in a plastic sleeve (bag) that was folded over and sealed with a burgundy colored small sticker. Did anyone get one that was factory sealed?
