From Plague Haus:
When I’m having a bad day in the cubicle jungle, I find myself strolling on into the boss’ office, not with an AK-47, but one the latest in my arsenal of BU releases, cranking it to 10, turning over his shelves, smashing him over the head with his laptop and shitting on his desk. If the government really wanted to get the Ewoks spilling their guts at Guantanamo Bay, they wouldn’t be playing any wimpy NIN shit.

From Existence Establishment (http://existest.org/ee_v3/?p=1588)
Cabinet of Curiosities is a standard tape in a plastic case with simple text and graphics in high-contrast black and white adorning the j-card. It’s a simple, professional looking item and after dealing with all this weird packaging I’ve been collecting it seems somewhat refreshing. The tracks are simply named “Cabinet of Curiosities Part I & II” one track for each side.
Slow, dirgy, awkward, The Teratologist delivers industrial experimental music here. The strange torture device that adorns the cover seems so fitting for these sounds that bring …
