In our ongoing effort to reissue as much as the El Deth catalog as we can to the major digital retail outlets, this one was next.
Originally released in 2004, this was one of the earliest projects to come out of El Studio. I had met Hamilton at an open mic type of night at the now defunct Blue Cats in Knoxville’s Old City. We kept in touch and he gave me a DIY cassette release of something called The Common Cold EP. I absolutely loved it and we’ve passed through several musical doors together since.
This album features a track with Dire Con backing him up in full. (Of course I’ll take this moment to plug the upcoming, self titled, Dire Con release that El Deth will be throwing into the universe in a few months.) Also, note the additional lyrical stylings of The Illiest on that same track.
The chick on the cover, playing the part of Sara Lewis (who is named similar to that chick from Jag Star), is actually Melissa Fagan of The Melissa Fagan Band.
