about

Joe and Christian barely saw each other throughout the making of this album, relying even more heavily on passing files over the internet. In fact the finishing touches were done with Christian in Brooklyn and Joe in Mexico (where he will be living for the next 2 years for a job). The title track is featured on the Spettro Records podcast of the same name. Artist Dennis Ryan created the album cover using oil paint on canvas and Photoshop overlays.

Christian composed a lot more music than was used for the album, then decided not to use most of it because he wants to start playing weirder shit (especially Beby Radio). Joe tried to write a couple songs that weren't jokes, with marginal success. In the last recording (Deu), he took a liking to screaming nonsense words instead of writing lyrics, and not using any audio effects, reminiscent of his old band Rated R. Christian and Joe both see this album as an ending to their use of certain death metal and grindcore conventions as they start moving into more experimental territory.
