We did a couple of recording sessions in Gilman Street that became our self-published demo, then a session (w/ Kevin Army) for our Very Small compilation, a session (w/ Kevin Army) for our Lookout single, the main session (w/ Kevin Army) that became the Rough Trade / 6th International album and was also used for our split single with Phleg Camp, and then a session in Minneapolis for our split single with Angry Son on Skene.
- One track on “the coffee comp” aka “If you see through it, it ain’t coffee” 7 inch single compilation on Very Small Records.
- One track on “Four Two Pudding” compilation CD on Very Small Records.
- 7 inch single on Lookout Records
- Self-titled LP and MC (cassettes, remember them?) on 6th International, which was an in-house subsidiary of Rough Trade U.S., the label I was working for at the time.
- Self-titled LP and CD on Rough Trade Germany - we found out about this release on tour. Rough Trade US had the German company put it out to recoup more of their costs (our advance and the tour budget). We had not wanted a CD released of our first album since it only ran a little more than a half-hour. We had planned to only do a CD, if we did a second album and could put both on one CD.
- Split single with Phleg Camp on Allied Recordings, John Yates’ record label. John was my roommate in the Maximum Rock’n'Roll house and he ended up doing all our artwork. I discovered Phleg Camp when I was a shitworker at MRR, living in the house in Noe Valley for cheap rent if I did shitwork like typing in reviews and doing tape reviews. Phleg Camp’s demo happened to fall into my hands, which led to us touring together and doing the split single.
- Split single with Angry Son on Skene Records. We were touring with Angry Son and played together in Minneapolis. Jeff Skene organized recording sessions with whatever band he had booked into town with Tim Mac (Halo of Flies bassist) at his 6 Feet Under studio.
- Track from Skene single also appeared on “Can We Break Through?” compilation LP released by Skene in the U.K.
- Monuments to Excess CD on Allied Recordings. After Rough Trade U.S. went bankrupt, John came through for us, buying up our Rough Trade masters at auction, gathering up all the other material, doing new artwork, and releasing the compilation of all our previously released material onto one fine CD. This version came with the “This Machine Kills Fascists” sticker, inspired by a photo of Woody Guthrie.
- Self-titled LP on Ebullition Records. Kent McClard, a good friend of Mike’s, re-released the vinyl version of our original album.
- Monuments to Excess CD on Broken Rekids. When John decided to retire Allied Recordings, Mike Millett stepped up and re-re-released our material, which remains in print to this day.
