NOTES ABOUT THE RECORDINGS:
1, 8, 9 recorded live at the Cancun in Ladd, IL year 2004. Thanks to the special few who were there. Here's the flyer Mike drew for this show.
2, 4, 6 recorded at the Richards family homestead in Minonk, IL on 4 track between 2002 and 2005.
3 recorded at SMS by Rob Newell in Tremont, IL, 2003. Radiation Flowers outtake.
5 written by Bloody Mess, recorded for Bloody & the Bastard Children tribute CD, 2004. This is an alternate, more ridiculous version than the one we gave them to put on the tribute. It is also sort of a junky mix.
7 is a vary preliminary stab at the "Rebekah's Tape is Floating Nipple Energy" sampler-based, dancey type muisc vibe. Recorded 2005 - 2006 at Mike & Cory's dumpster house in La Salle.

Rebekah's Tape was an experimental rock band that formed in 1997-98 out of the MAKESHIFT Music, etc. group's home recording
activities. They were active in the Illinois Valley music scene from 1999 to 2009. Members of RT later formed Amalgamated, Gushing Cloud, & Dog Hallucination. As of May 2021 (MHAM) going forward, all RTape music sales here will be donated to mental health charities....more
A wide ranging concept album, from introspection to sustained explosion, grating annoyance to authentic bliss. Not for the faint of heart. Try tracks 2 & 11 first. Track 13 is masterfully out of time. Rebekah's Tape
