First Monolators full-length. We recorded this in our garage on an ancient Teac 80-8 8-track reel to reel deck and a vast Tascam mixing board, neither of which we still have, sadly/thankfully. It was a love/hate relationship.
We didn't know anything about mixing so we hired an engineer who was a friend of Mike's to transfer the tracks to Pro Tools and mix it for us. He did an ok job but was so appalled by the low-fi-ness of our efforts that he asked us to leave his name OFF the record. I think he was afraid that it would ruin his professional reputation. And so we have complied with his request to this day.
200 copies were burned to cd-r, sold out.
