Double album compilation on Insight Records. Compiled by Eric Cope of Glorious Din. Two tracks each of the following bands:
World Of Pooh with tracks off their 'The Land Of Thirst' album. With Barbara Manning on vocals who played in 28th Day before. Also with drummer Jay Paget of Glorious Din and later Thinking Fellers Union Local 282. Brandon Kearney also played with Caroliner and Archipelago Brewing Company.
Spahn Ranch offer two tracks off their 'Thickly Settled' album released on Insight.
Dog Food has Eric Cope and Brandon Kearney. Probably a one-off collaboration.
Beetle Leg was a project of producer Matt Walace.
Beatnigs offer two tracks of their album on Alternative Tentacles. It seems that Insight Records was involved with this release as well. Beatnigs evolved to The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy and had Michael Franti in the band.
Stiff Legged Sheep released a 7" on Smudged records before. Their contribution is exclusive.
Next is Glorious Din with two tracks off their 'Closely Watched Trains' album.
Harry's Picket Fence had three members of Glorious Din. Doug Heeschen later in garagerock band The Gargoyles.
Next two bands are Raining House and Barnacle Choir. No other releases.
Enigma was a project with Beatnigs members.
Stickdog offers one track from their first album on Smudged and a track from their second album 'Human' on Alternative Tenctacles.
Systems Collapse are next and the only songs released of them that I know of.
Caroliner Rainbow Throw Up Fantasy is better known these days as Caroliner.
Archipelago Brewing Company closes the album.
My copy doesn't include the inserts unfortunately.
