I have tapes Man & Hammer tapes (Just Say Noise! and Translation of Emotion), so I thought I had them all. But this demo and another one (Not Dead) showed up in the box. And looking at the numbering system for Jeru-Slam Records, there could be even more. This seems to be mostly distorted guitar played in eclectic ways over drum machines and/or found noise and samples. Some songs have spoken word vocals, others are instrumental. These were basically lo-fi one person projects by David Joo, who also worked on other projects like Hellfire. Most of the Jeru-Slam tapes had some kind of designed cover – even if lo-fi. This tape doesn’t, so I wonder if it is a pre-release and there is a cover out there, or if this is it?
