2. Ancestral Diet — VITRIOL [LP release by Turned Word & Saxwand, mems Caethua, C-Section 8, flakmask. chill industrial stone-fest!]

3. Normanoak — Elixer [cassette release on Magnetic South, to borrow a term from the bad boys at Foxy Digitalis this tape has been, of yet, ‘criminally limited’ at 50 — none of which ever made it out of the central Indiana area. some say it’s too reverby but chris, seth, and the gang cranked out anther true time-testin’ document]

4. Clear Leader — [self titled cassette (mems Crude Hill,…?) Gross Domestic Product # 008 ~ chorus on the bass and thin guitar dance 2 steps with the 1 step drums in the haunting way that it seems only providence folks can do stuff]

5. CAEN — STULSAFT [cassette release on Gutter Rash MMX… in a town in oregon there’s a dude named Gordon who is involved w lotsa noise and metal and does it as well as anyone has or will]

5.5 CONCERN — Caesarean [Lp release by Arbor Gordon.]

*** 5 and 5.5 are the chill side of Gordon’s output which is all i happen to hav copies of so far.. haven’t heard knelt rote lp yet – heard it’s scarier than a lotta stuff, also plays as Oscillating Innards]

6. Nonhorse — The Fear of Infinity [cassette release part of the HYPNO/FEAR TAPE SYSTEM by G. Lucas Crane’s Socialized Topic Logistics– silent barn hero and member of woods.. mind melter… freakazoid meditator… The Fear of Infinity!!]

8. Order Out of Chaos (comp.) [cassette release # 68 in the Mississippi Records tape series, packed with musicas the world over but, like, all the stript peaceful and weird versions; their well is deeeeeep and this stuff they selected for the tape (lotsa similar-veign vinyl from them now as always), no muscle only skeleton as some stuff has to be listened to on tape]
