This tape is some sort of mirror image to the Celesteville album "Kohoutek," which I highly recommend. A few of these tracks started out as tracks for that one. Other tracks should have probably been included on the 12" "Albania Tonight. In retrospect, I like this version (earlier) of "Let's Be Bored" better. And why "To The Sun" wasn't released until now is a mystery to me; see above for my ideas on that subject. Maybe I was too busy playing old video games

December 99th, Bey’s new album with producer Ferrari Sheppard, is by far the worst thing he’s ever released. I’m not just talking music; I mean this is the saddest thing-album, commercial, or film-with which Bey’s been associated. There’s nothing even remotely redeeming here, and it makes me wonder how long the rapper was awake before he wrote and recorded this material. For its 31 minutes, Bey sleepwalks through every track, mumbling nonsensical flows that never connect at all.

Liner notes from release:
Reissue of cassette originally released by Nearsighted Records.
I'm not sure if the correct term for the years covered on this cassette would be "dilly-dallying" or "fiddle-farting." Either way, these were years in which I tried to reconcile my love for unironic pop music with my nascent hipster love for noise and wanky improv, and I think it took me a while to realize anew that a song without ridiculous Moog or sampling or what-have-you can be all right, too.

Maybe I was too busy playing old video games. 6 of these tracks were related in some way to the Atari 2600 or Odyssey 2, and one to the Commodore 64. Moral: music doesn't go along with fiddle-farting.
Brian MacDonald helped a lot with some of these songs; though we've definitely gone different ways since, we had some fun times annoying the neighbors and a few spectators.
"Rural Breakdance King" was written with Christie Gorman in mind, although I embellished it with a few details from my past. Please ignore my hideous vocals."
