about

The two volumes of Raw Sewage were a compendium of best cuts from discontinued titles, earlier phases of Walls of Genius, before we had even “become” Walls of Genius, thus “raw sewage”, a self-deprecatory joke. I discontinued The Guilt Vs. Time Money Complex because I felt it wasn’t as strong a selection as our others. In retrospect, it strikes me just fine. I don’t remember why we discontinued Sunday Monday Or Always! It’s quite likely that we were simply not selling any of them and there was no point in continuing to keep the title “available”. Since we were duping cassettes mostly on-demand only, it really wouldn’t have made much difference either way. Perhaps we thought it looked professional to have a number of titles “out of print”. In any case, most of that material had never been heard by our audience since, for most of our listeners, we had “emerged” full-blown with the title “Before…And After”. We wanted the best of the early material to be available in a way that would make it seem new. Plus, we were ‘exposure whores’ and wanted to be mentioned in as many issues of the underground and local press as possible. The easiest way to achieve that was to constantly release new titles for review. Taking old material and re-releasing it gave us an easy option to pursue this strategy. We made the two volumes 60-minute releases, a compromise from our earlier penchant for full 90-minute programs and the more successful 45-minute programs we had recently released. This program reflects Little Fyodor and Lauren ("Babushka") Swain's digitization in June 2004, which up-dated the selections on the original cassette release.
