CAT MACHINE--litterbox



Some of the best of CAT MACHINE,but by no means a definitive collection.This cassette was most people's first introduction to the band,compiled after the band had broken up,and is the first tape listed in the original Sluggisha Tapes mailorder catalog..A good cross section ,not in chronological order,so as to get different eras sounds blended into one essence.These recordings were made between 1990 and 1991,and include some tracks in the transition period to becoming ONE FELL SWOOP!.Ed ,Joel,and Tony.were the core,then Chipmunk joined.Vance,Billy and Shane were on a lot of sessions,as were other local luminaries.Dave Roth guests on,"Tore My Hair Out Today",and Dave"antelope leaps",guest vocals on"Count The Hours" on this comp.We started out for fun making a tape,which soon turned into at least 2 - 90 minute tapes a week.Lots of improv,on the spot stuff,some 4-track,some live.We used to record mostly on a suburb blaster which accounts for the sound quality.It's all classic stuff that deserves many repeated listenings.Lots more in the vault.Enjoy this for now!Caution:will not fit on a cd ,make it a 2 parter .thanks G O D

The anonymous comment was ME, Tony Rizzo...I can't seem to remember my blogger password.
How come 'Vexed' didn't make the cut? Moon Over Mannequins is pretty awesome, tho.
