This one took a long time to convert to digital. The music is basically live improvisational music, kind of along the lines of White Trash, Inc. Or maybe not – I am not totally familiar with this type of music. That is the closest that I am familiar with. Eventually, I was able to find cassette clicks where the various songs ended and finally made the individual songs. Many of them are named after quotes or samples that are played during the songs. There are instruments played on here, plus found noise and samples as well. Each side is over 47 minutes long – with the last song clocking in at over 33 minutes. I can take White Trash , Inc. on a 7-inch for a short amount of time, but this really pushed my attention span. It probably works better as background or meditation music.
