in 1998 ERADICATE got the chance to do a short tour with DROPDEAD by accident and as we not even had 10 copies of our 7" left we made some tapes (the back-cover says 100 copies but I doubt that) with the tracks from the 7" and also recorded some new songs plus covers of SERVE & PROTECT from CITIZENS ARREST and DEUTSCHE RAUS AUS DEUTSCHLAND from THE BUTTOCKS on 4 tracks in our rehearsal room for said tape. as we recorded and mixed those songs in a hurry the sound quality is far from brilliant! actually we only had a few hours for the recordings and not even an hour for mixing them! if you take that into consideration plus the fact that I had to do the mixing for whatever reason although I had absolutely no fucking clue or experience in that field it doesn't sound so bad. as a matter of fact I've heard a lot of stuff worse than this. anyway, the tape was housed in an envelope, with a print of the frozen face of Han Solo when he was hibernating in the carbonite desk on it and not in a plastic snap box cause A) an envelope can't break and B) cause one of my favorite tapes, the GEHENNA demo, was also housed in one. the tape also came with a xeroxed booklet that contained the artwork of our 7" and the lyrics of our 3 new tracks which were all re-recorded when we recorded our 12" with Dirk K. at Kuschelrock. thinking about it we had also re-recorded SERVE & PROTECT but Dirk somehow deleted 4 or 5 tracks by accident including our CITIZENS ARREST cover and we sadly only had time to record our own tracks once again. as I'll post our 12" and the unreleased tracks that were supposed to be released on a split 7" with F.N.9 I just upped the 2 covers. click the CITIZENS ARREST spoof to download.
