From the insert:
WELCOME, FRIENDLY LISTENER. The record in which you have found this insert is the realization of a years-long dream of mine. I first cast the notion of a split 45 between Googolplexia and Butt into the universe within the first year of the 21st century. Whether by will of geography, or providence, or high tension, or the burdens of being human, or some combination of all of the above, it has taken until now to see it come to fruition. I am particularly proud of the triple-entendre comprised by the phrase “Butt Release” – not only is there the obvious reference to toilet activity, and the notion that this record is, in fact, a release by the band known as Butt, but of course the lyrics of the song itself tell the story of an actual release of the hardened criminals Mario Seaweed and Amy Froggpockets (collectively, Butt) from prison. Now, if I can only get them to drop each one of these records off the roof of a building, we’ll have a QUADRUPLE-entendre on our hands…Special thanks and major propers are due perhaps first and foremost to our friend(s) and Denton, Texas’s own Fishboy, whose amazing record CLASSIC CREEPS we shamelessly and somewhat scatologically parodized here without relent or particular consent, not only in the artwork, but also with the included comic that relays the story told on the record in a second artistic form, the flow of one song into the other (have fun making it play seamlessly on a turntable, though – Wocka Wocka!), and both songs being (in their own way) about strange citizens of the world—particularly, in this case, the artist featured on the other side of the record). It all began with the high-level “get an embroidery of yerself as a Classic Creep!” promotion offered through the fantastic Happy Happy Birthday To Me record label out of Athens, Georgia. All I can say for sure is that, if anyone ever does to any of my records what ASS-SICK CREEPS does to CLASSIC CREEPS, I will consider it a rare and boundless honor. If you’re interested in more records with swell embroidery art and tunes about whimsical characters that flow into one another seamlessly, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on CLASSIC CREEPS and check out Fishboy, which you can do at www.hhbtm.com
. If you want another record that contains a triple-entendre, you’ll have to get MOVING PICTURES by Rush. Thanks for listening, and be sure to download the uninterrupted MP3 version of ASS-SICK CREEPS using the URL listed below.
