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...

This is so fucking awesome. I've loved bungle for so long for so many reasons. And when I heard about this re-release I had to be peeled off the ceiling. The only way i could be happier is if they re-released Disco Volante as well. That album was pure genius for different reasons. But thats Bungle for you. No two albums sound the same. This release shows how amazingly far ahead of the metal curve they were even waaayyyy back then. Mr. Bungle has influenced so many artists. Long live Mr. Bungle! DeKremp

Mike Patton is a vocal genius, Tomahawk are the great American hope for all bands to aspire to and this album just speaks to so many generations, clever well written music and sounds amazing. Darknight

This album is wonderfully eclectic yet cohesive. Each song is strong on it's own, but taken together the album is much greater than the sum of it's parts. The production is outstanding. The string arrangements are stellar. Valisystem A stands out for sounding so alien and other worldly while also being really catchy, but picking a favorite is really hard on this one. Dolorous Stroke
