about

All material was recorded (live to 2-track) between 1994 and 1996; it was first compiled on Feb. 4 1996. The selections came from about 10 cassettes.

Equipment used: Realistic mixers; Soundesign cassette recorder; Peavy guitar, amps, and cabinet; Ibanez & Fender basses; Pearl, CB700, and Roland drums; Peavy & Popular Mechanics microphones; Yamaha percussion & effects generator; Radio Shack microcassette recorder; Super Nintendo (Mario Paint); Matt Richmond's Computer; Selmer Pro USA sax; ART FXR effects processor

Around 2002, the 2 master cassettes were recorded into a Roland VS-840EX. Effects were added and the audio was output onto CD-Rs. The CD-Rs were ripped to digital files. By this time, various glitches and artifacts had been introduced. In 2004, around 35 raw cassettes (including all the original source tapes used in The Basement Collection) were recorded into a Toshiba Satellite using the built-in soundcard and Wave Editor software.

On January 28th, 2017, the files from the 2002 version were opened in Pro Tools. Some questionable material was edited out. Some glitches were fixed. Some were not. A few particularly bad tracks were replaced using the source tapes (from the 2004 digitizing). The tracks were exported and uploaded to Bandcamp.

about

Disproof

Post-pretentious Avant-lowercase

If you call "tails", tradition is to place great value in old models that blaspheme change and corrupt evolution. If you call "heads", tradition is discovery of new ideas which allow the collective mind to expand weightlessly.

If you call "Disproof", no one answers the phone and all bets are off.
