The Dead C / Rangda split LP

Side 1: Four lost Eusa Kills (1989) tracks by The Dead C, ranging from dying dictaphone distortion and decayed drum machine beats on the title track and almost punk rhythms on track 4 "Heaven's Wheel." Note: I have mistakenly numbered both track number 3 "This Much I Know" and aforementioned track number 4 as "04"

Side 2: Two improvised sunset-watching-in-the-desert jams by Rangda (Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance, Sir Richard Bishop of Sun City Girls and Chris Corsano. Last track "Sancticallist" is utterly ear candy.

2013 LP on Ba Da Bing!
