about

Way back in 1988 the guys in Camper Van Beethoven were riding high on an 80s alternative music wave. Before that dream turned into a nightmare, we made a bunch of albums. Jonathan Segel, the band's multi-instrumentalist, unknowingly embarked on his solo career with this anachronistic gem, essentially a prog-rock concept (double) album. Spin magazine's guide to rock dubbed it a "double album art-rock horror".

Initially released at the end of 1988 on Pitch-A-Tent (the band's label) through Rough Trade, Jonathan and Camper Van Beethoven separated in early 1989 (for about a decade) and then Rough Trade went bankrupt in 1990. The album came out on vinyl, cassette and CD, though none contained the entire thing.

Out of print ever since, we went back to the original mixes before their original late 80s spiky mastering and had the great Myles Boisen remaster the entire kit and kaboodle.
