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.

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, accumulating a fair number of followers & having quite an abundance of wonderful times w/ good people along the way. Members of RT later formed Amalgamated, Gushing Cloud, & Dog Hallucination....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
