initially released as a CD-r edition of 25 copies for a few HOLC shows in 2005, i've finally gotten it together to make a digital version of this available. it is available here as well as from the SIGE Records page. there may be a vinyl edition of this at some point down the road, but this is it for now. PDF booklet included with download. there will be some additional HOLC digital reissues of out of print materials coming in the following weeks.
also, utech records has a preorder up now for the CD version of the long delayed mamiffer/house of low culture split. check that out (and a bunch of other awesome new utech releases), here. the LP version is still in the works, but has been held up due to multiple sets of bad test pressings. i'm hoping that'll be available before the end of the year.
