A sprawling 140+ minute compendium covering some thirty odd years of marginal fringe fuckery, this takes in several of the key trajectories covered on MS, from L.A. Music Society (Solid Eye, Points Of Friction, Smegma and Tom Recchion) to Caroliner Rainbow and it's various maladapted offspring ala Fat Worm Of Error and Hans Grusel's Krankenkabinet alongside a raft of other notables like The Sun City Girls, Stilluppsteypa, Metalux, Mono Pause and several reps of the Michigan noise mafia from Wolf Eyes to Nautical Almanac. Peak bits here for me? Fat Worm Of Error's dada spasms, Solid Eye's fantastic live version of Flag Etiquette from their debut CD, The magical Francois Bayle-meets-Anne Gillis electroacoustics of Leticia Castaneda, the wonky robots-in-an-aquarium sonics of Points Of Friction, The Spider Compass Good Crime Band's martian tango, Stilluppsteypa's subterranean surrealism, Black Bear Combo's Che-Shizu-like see-sawing trudge, Hans Grusel's Krankabinet's morse code transmission to Raymond Scott, Caroliner's signature ergot poisoned wheeze, The Ritualistic School Of Error's ballet for broken vinyl and organ grinder's monkeys, Smegma with Wild Man Fisher's inspired extemporaneous non sequiturs and Tom Recchion's maniacal spin cycle "Voodoo Hell In Haiti".
