released January 1, 2018

In yet another attempt to inflict what we do on the masses, we are (for the first time) officially releasing this compilation of previously-released material to big league, professional, corporate digital retailers - like iTunes, Shazam, Amazon, CD Baby and others - who'll overcharge for it while having no idea what is secretly infesting their sites and playlists.

Over the years, we've managed to successfully maintain a low profile, buoyed by the comments and camaraderie of a small cabal of followers, curiosity seekers and disturbed music aficionados. There is, after all, really no place for what we do in the "marketplace" (despite the UPC code), so it's just as well. Though... we're hoping that the exposure provided by mega-store retailers might attract a few more oddballs to our tiny corner of the web.

Precisely what newcomers (and old hands alike) will find on THE BEHEST OF WE'RE LATE FOR CLASS is not meant to suggest it's our "best." But, this 10-track collection just might be considered our best BET... to avoid various defamation-of-character & copyright lawsuits. You'll hear 80 minutes of grooved-out jams, never-ending excursions, short bursts of nonsense, a mind-numbing 22:44 opus, and even a taste of our jazz-blistered alter-ego, Art Jackson's Atrocity. All thoughtfully sequenced and ever-mindful of your blissed-out smoking jacketed listening pleasure. Just like the sub-header says.

Virtually all of this irreverence was recorded live, without rehearsals, without much thought and without much sobriety. We advise you to approach it all with the same frame of mind.

Thanks for listening... and thanks to all you supporters out there.
