This is the 20th Anniversary digital re-release of the "Killing Time" cassette tape by Sean Luciw, originally released in 1996. The front cover reads:
This experimental FREAK-OF-AUDIO was created (mostly improvised) using only a bunch of guitars, a bass, and loads of FX (no keyboards, samplers, drums, drum machines or tape speed manipulation.) Recorded + mixed April 16+15/96 as a means of killing time while waiting for better things to happen. The so-called artist accepts no responsibility for psychological or other damage ensued as a result of this music. Besides only a FREAK would listen to this kind of music in the first place!
I made this music while I was waiting for the Sugar Shark CDs to come back from the manufacturer. I rubbed a dishcloth on the strings to emulate hi-hats in "Rabbit Ears". The fretless bass in "Must be Nice" was played using thumbs only, no fingers. "Silky Sweet" has a very specific chord progression but no steady timing.
