One of my hobbies is hitting up garage/estate sales and picking up media & vintage electronics. I went to this one place in Orangevale and they handed me a big paper handle bag and told me to fill it up for $5. I went over to the CD’s, cassettes and VHS tapes and grabbed all of them (about 50) without really looking. I got some serious cheez (Yanni cassette, angela landsbury workout VHS) but I also got an einsturzende neubauten tape, a green day dookie promo tape, and this one. I was floored when I pulled this out of the bag. It makes me wonder- was this person a easy listening fan, and they also loved EN & Deathray? Maybe it was one of the grandkids’ tapes. Who knows.
Anyway, 4 of these 6 songs made the 1st album on Capricorm. 2 of them are on the Poprockit 7″ from 1998 (I believe that is Kevin Seconds’ label). 2 are unreleased.
