Michael Knott’s first official solo release. Due to problems with Blonde Vonyl’s distributor going under, this album was fairly hard to find for quite a while (now available as a CD-R re-issue online). This album is one of the heavier and darker of Knott’s solo albums, showcasing a strong 90’s heavy alternative influence.
At an L.S.U. show at Kennedy’s in St. Louis, MO in 1993, Knott said that the song “Apocalypse Lips” was about his wife (at the time) Windy.
This album was scheduled to be re-released in the late 1990’s on the Lion Communications label, but they went out of business. Re-released independently on CD-R format in 2003.
Remastered in 2011 by J. Powel (Cliffy of The Huntingtons). Remaster was released as a digital download on Bandcamp.com
