A seasonal obscurity from the archives, free from SC3!
With karaoke B-Side!
In 1996 William Winant, Trey Spruance and Gregg Turkington (here in character as some kind of depraved boarding house voyeur, not Neil Hamburger) entered Forking Paths studio to record a song for inclusion on a Japanese Christmas album. Other artists on the comp included Merzbow, Melt Banana, Hair Stylistics, God is My Co-Pilot, Gastor del Sol etc.
A recently discovered cassette rough mix of this track without the lead vocals prompted this immediate release! The possibilities for your own disturbing yuletide karaoke enactments are enormous. Also FREE to the public!
If the spirit of gift giving simply overtakes you after hearing this offering of questionable taste, have a look around at the other SC3 and WoM stocking stuffers on our bandcamp page.

The B-side involved some salvaging of the far-from-perfect-audio (a more-than-two-decades-old cassette that's been forgotten under a house for 18 years). So while we were at it, we went ahead and remastered the original track as well. This'll be new to most of you in any case...
The mallet percussionist and improviser's solo debut is flush with nostalgic melodies and stirring dissonances—a rich, experimental universe well worth exploring. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 15, 2021
