Deck. (1998, F04)
On a hot August afternoon in 1997, ABTBE gathered at a New Jersey backyard to record some stuff on 4-track. But this was no beer-swillin' acoustic BBQ jam. They dragged all of their amps and guitars and effects and things outside, and they set up a VHS camcorder on the lawn. They fed the audio from the 4-track machine (line out) to the camcorder (mic in... oops). After they disbanded several months later, two former members found the VHS tape (with extremely distorted audio) and watched, and listened, and smiled, and edited, and EQ'd, and released. This.
