This release was originally a somewhat hastily assembled compilation of tracks I had been working on at the time, a couple of which had appeared previously on my cassette releases, a couple of which had appeared on various comps, and one or two collaborations I had been working on... 'strika' is a track I did w/ Scott Cortez of lovesliescrushing as a 7" under the name Vir on Drone Records... 'The First Hundred Seconds' is a track I did w/ anaphylaxis for something or other.
It was made for a mini-tour Drekka did w/ Remora up to Duluth for the Elegy 25-hour drone performance curated by Alan Sparhawk, Sept 21-22 in Duluth, MN.
In a lot of ways, this is a snapshot of Drekka at the turn of the century, having just moved to Bloomington from Chicago and assessing what I had been working on. It was also made around the time I had begun touring, and since then I have maintained a tradition of making special/small-run tour releases.
This compilation has some of my favourite tracks on it, and I still quite enjoy most of this material. I hope you will also.
