Deranged free improvisations for homemade 4 stringed guitar and voice. B.B. (of Styrofoam Duck, Free Boys) plugged in, hit record and went totally ape-shit bonkers. Circular uber skronk anti-riffs and garbled stream of consciousness shrieking. Dark catharsis for isolation tanks. Black out the windows baby, I think I'm gonna puke. These bizarre solo recordings were originally self-released as a ridiculously limited cassette ( 10 copies?) and absolutely deserve to be bounced off a few more foreheads. Deeply strange freak-fest, indeed. Bizarre falsetto screeching and tourette's syndrome growls over de-tuned string torture and distinct non-structures. Sounds for the nuclear age, and strictly off the cuff. New artwork this time around with all tracks freshly mixed and mastered for the ultimate Isaf-fidelity. Made newly available in time for the greatly anticipated "Free Boys" appearance at the upcoming "Heavy Focus" festival in Minneapolis, MN. Real time duplicated black shell cassette with bright ocean blue labels comes packaged with fold out double sided cardstock J-card. Artwork features an evocative full color photograph by Paul Borman portraying the good Sir himself crawling on the floor wearing his Janet Reno outfit and digging through a half empty refrigerator. Classic. After a recent solo performance in NC, a random gentleman from the audience commented, "What you just did, what I just saw, was quite possibly the worst thing that I have seen in my entire life". He must be doing something right.
