This was a 'clear out the studio' collection - old songs from
all sorts of places gathered together on one album. Three tracks
- Guitar Center, Nothing Worth Knowing
and The Overwhelming Smell - had already appeared
on various compilations. Simple Gesture was also
released in the same year on the 'proper' album The
Drama Of Alienation, with a slightly different title, but it
sounds exactly the same recording so it's confusing as to why it's
on both. Asshole is a Beck song, from his K
album, and was released as a single a year or two before, while
Lance was playing guitar for him on tour. However, the album version
is possibly an alternate (new?) take.
Wade plays drums on Guitar Centre (unless it's
a re-recording) and Reed is on all the other songs. The album title
was 'borrowed' and adapted from Hüsker Dü.
