Yes. I'd post a photo but Discogs has been telling me uploads from my camera's phone are too large. Ask him about this one... I'd love to hear what his reply is. Really don't know why it never got acknowledged more.

The cover/sleeve came in at least three colors (the one pictured, purple, and mine is blue).

Graphics and packaging wise, this is definitely the best version of this release. I was stoked to get a beautiful one direct from Ukraine.

Same here. Got it from a HC distro in 1995 (yes, the year listed here is wrong too).

Not the same artist as the death metal band from Maine. Needs its own listing!

Have you heard the actual CD? The sound on it is crystal clear and brutal. I've had my copy since 1997. I agree the upload you linked to sounds awful...

Well, bone vinyl is still the most readily available version - not only on Discogs, but from Bandcamp and distros as well. Seems to indicate your guess is pretty far off. Glad I got one on swamp green/splatter. To me it's the most fitting color,... See full review

Someone close to me introduced me to this album in 1996. I ordered myself a so-called new copy from Tower Records' online store in the late 90's, and they sent me a sealed one that had been repackaged with a standard grey disc tray. Took me several... See full review

Me too, Clif. What a treasure it is. I remember how blown away I was in early 2007 when I went down to Spinnaker's and picked it up, listened, and read your liner notes. More than a decade later I finally got a nice copy of the deluxe version.

This is one of two collaboration CDr's by these two artists. The other is called "Phantoms", was released in 2004 and is limited to 75 copies. I got mine directly from Eric of Bastard Noise after he gave me a heads up about its release. Be... See full review

There are 3 versions that I have seen: the ones in these entries and one with a bright orange cover/sleeve and white cassette with black print. It's the one I have, and is also pictured in the YouTube uploads. The fourth would be the black cover... See full review

The band recorded two demos. Whether either or both were released to the public, I still don't know. Would be great to find out more.

Thank you! My tape and booklet are in "deep storage". The booklet that came with mine (to the best of my recollection) only had illustrations and no printed song listings or lyrics. Hmm...

This is an UNOFFICIAL RELEASE. At the time it came out, I contacted It's Alive Records (yes, the correct one listed above) and was told they did not release this - and my contact also said no catalog number 102 exists.
posted a review of Facility Men - Facility Men. 11 months ago
Leaps and bounds better than their earlier stuff. This EP delivers pummeling, quasi-claustrophobic & unrelenting noise rock in the vein of the best that the late 80's and first half of the 90's had to offer. Cathartic and awesome. Find a physical copy! See full review

This release (or at least some copies of it) came with an illustrated booklet. Strangely enough, the booklet also does not have any songs listed. The band was based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. They had three other cassette releases following this... See full review

Thank you Dan! It's a great release, and I was always surprised that this session did not make it onto the Fine Day CD.

Sold on a well known auction site two days ago, at a price you would expect to see for some classic New York hardcore demo or something. 🤯💥😮

The cassette appears to be much harder to find than any vinyl version. Grateful to have grabbed one I saw listed back in the spring.

These were only available at signing events for the Urban Styles book during the initial tour for the book. This cassette came out in fall 2017, as opposed to what the listing says. (I was at the Philly signing.)

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... 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 the name of a label that co-released this cassette with Vermin Scum. A seventh song that appears on later copies of this release is titled "Once Upon A When". https://www.discogs.com/label/237920-Dancing-Song-Records

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... 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... 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.

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.)
