For several years spanning the late 90's and early 00's, Unconditional Loathing were the kings of the Minneapolis "noise" scene. With line-ups of up to a dozen members, and a million incestuous side-projects, they alternately showcased high-concept performance art and the lowest in scummy absurdity. Beginning in 2001, the core members one by one relocated to various cities on the west coast, leaving many of us to believe the UL magic was lost forever - but this CD proves they're back on top, where they belong. Nasty noise and experimental electronics are interspaced with failed attempts to rehearse actual rock songs, as well as live recordings of the band getting unplugged by local noise promoters. A work of true genius.

Co-released by SunShip, Little Mafia, Breathmint and Ignivomous.
