Thanks! Wow, I didn't think anyone would actually *like* that stuff, that's why I didn't include it on the various collections that the band posted back in its day.

I also have a 29-minute clusterf*** from that same session that I'll post later tonight.

IIRC that was unmastered. I don't remember if I decided to drop the noisy/dissonant stuff off of the CD before or after the final mix. So that may be a scratch mix still; I don't remember.

The drummer probably still has the original PT project; I suppose I could go get it, import it into Ardour, and do another mix of it.

There is a lot on Archive.org from that band, most of it live:

We were very proud of our freakish-experimental-jazz Radiohead covers too, which IIRC are still up on the band's old MySpace page (try and guess what the band's name is a reference to).

Great fun that band was. I don't think we ever made a single penny.
