While digging through a box of old masters I found this disc. It was recorded in 2002 at the request of Brent Gutzeit for a series of DJ releases. It was also made so as to intentionally annoy Mr. Gutzeit, as with the inclusion of several Chicago bands and Thrill Jockey tracks. I never received copies of the disc, so didn't think it had actually been released, but Google appears to indicate otherwise.
It is all over the place, including several ridiculously layered tracks like Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock on top of Sam Prekop. I can't even identify many of the tracks at this point, but some artists who are definitely present: Kazumoto Endo, Pauline Oliveros, Apples in Stereo, Nerve Net Noise, Sunn 0))), Killah Priest, Refused, and Masonna. At 73 minutes, there's a little something for everyone, and a lot of nothing for no one.
Ripped at 128 to keep the file-size-to-quality ratio balanced.

Heading back to New York for No Fun this weekend (always a great time) so I figure now is an appropriate time to post a video of one of my last performances there.
This was my favorite set of the Sentimental Gentlemen tour and as my recording device failed to capture it properly, this video is the best existing documentation.
Much thanks to Acid Marshmallow for filming and sharing (and playing that night).
