* This CDR was self-released by the band for their 2001 tour with Them Of Delphi (Kevin Rains, Alan Short, Luke Hunsicker, and Jack Lloyd). Around 2004, plans were made for Jonathan Lee to release these songs as a split LP with Countdown To Putsch on his record label, but that never happened.

* Lyrics to "Barefoot" were written by Jason Baldwin, an Arkansan falsely imprisoned as a teenager for the terrible murders of three children in 1993-- widely known as one of the West Memphis Three. He and his co-defendants were released in 2011, after 18 years behind bars for crimes they did not commit. More information can be found at

* Members also in Humanbeast, V Manuscript, Bloodhuff, Universe, Holy Angell, Them Of Delphi, Ridin Dudes, Shitfire, Sickshine, Zucura, Tom Sweet, Divorce Chord, Soophie Nun Squad, Boomfancy, Gioteens, and K.
