BandCamp bonus tracks:

This, I believe, is the first Absence of Ceramics release. As such, it is a bit rougher in quality and production. But it also looks to be a one person project with programmed drums, so not bad for 1987. This is basically alternative rock, with a bit more regular rock leaning than later albums. I got the files for this on BandCamp for a decent price, and it came with three bonus tracks that you can’t preview on BandCamp. So far, 4 of the 5 AoC albums I have gotten off of BandCamp have bonus tracks, so I need to grab Surgery to see what it there as well. The bonus tracks here sound like there were recorded at the same time as the official tracks.
