Additional notes
In 1996, Amphetamine Reptile Records did a series of vinyl singles for the band, with 2 songs per single. There was one released each month, so 12 were done in total. Each one was limited to 800 copies. The songs were a mixed bunch, from covers to live recordings to rejected demos from the Atlantic-years.

This 2CD set is a collection of all 12 singles. Disc 1 has the first 6 singles, disc 2 has the other 6.

The final song on disc 2 is actually performed by Brutal Truth, and it's them covering The Melvins' song "Zodiac."
