180 Gram Vinyl Repress in Gatefold sleeve. Comes with 12"-sized 6p-booklet.

In this Repress, every "il" is replaced with a "Õ" and every "io" is replaced by a "Š", resulting in dozends of typos on the rear and in the liner notes in the booklet. The labels are unaffected though.

SIDES A & B. Originally released on the "Burritos, Inspiration Point, Fork Balloon Sports, Cards In The Spokes, Automatic Biographies, Kites, Kung Fu, Trophies, Banana Peels We've Slipped On, And Egg Shells We've Tippy Toed Over" LP/CD on Mark Pearsall and Mike Corley's Man With Gun Records. Recorded December 1994 by Casey Rice at Idful Music Corporation. "Kitty, kitty cats" on LITTLE LEAGUE by Anja Westerweck. "I'm dying to tell you I'm dying. I don't need a reason" on YES, I AM TALKING TO YOU are Bob Nanna's words. Refer to Friction's "Auburn" ca. 1994. Kevin J. Frank appears on the piano in BLUEGRASS.

TAKE ON ME. TOKYO. OOH DO I LOVE YOU. HEY MA... except for TAKE ON ME, none of these recordings were ever considered finished or intended to be released. TAKE ON ME was supposed to be on some 80's cover comp. which apparently never came to fruition and HEY MA... ended up on Matt Werth's File 13 Records "We've Lost Beauty" comp. It features Mike doing most of the singing while Tim harmonica'd. Recorded 1995 by Rob Roy Campbell. Mixed by Elliot Dicks.

FORGET WHO WE ARE. OLERUD. The last two songs we ever wrote and polar opposites of each other. Written in the "C" tuning now made infamous by the Promise Ring. Recorded live by Aadam Jacob's Sonic Archives Mobile Recording Unit at the Fireside Bowl, July 7, 1995 - our last show in Chicago.

WE ARE SCIENTISTS! SEA TEA. TROUBLED BY INSECTS. originally released as "Sometimes if you stand further away from something, it does not seem as big. Sometimes you can stand so close to something you can not tell what you are looking at." 7" on Underdog Records. Recorded October 1993 by Neal Jensen and Kevin J. at Old Plank. Kevin also played guitar noise on SEA TEA. ROCKY ROCOCO was recorded at the same time and originally released on the "Nothing Dies With Blue Skies" split 7' with Friction on Scott Snot's own Shakefork Records. All 4 tracks include guest bass player Sudden Porthole.

AOK. SERGIO VALENTE. originally released on "Boys 16-18 Years ... Age of Action" 7" on Further Beyond Records. Recorded March 1993 by Neal Jensen at Old Plank. Backing vocals on Sergio Valente by Erik Bocek, Keven J. Neal, Aaron Lipke, and Shane Mason.
