ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To celebrate 10 years of the existence of Rubber Band Banjo, we scavenged the vaults for audio scraps and oddities from the early years. The result is the first volume of Junk DNA: B-sides and Rarities from 2001-2005, playing mostly in reverse chronological order starting with Hypermutator-era B-sides and ending with the ultra-rare first Rubber Band Banjo EP, Loop Humor Therapy. This EP was previously described as follows: "A wretched EP was created with the demo version of a cheap program in four days flat. It sounds somewhere in between the Conan the Barbarian soundtrack, video game music, and Mr. Bungle gone horribly wrong." Some of these tracks on Junk DNA: B-Sides and Rarities, Volume 1 were secretly released via hidden website links for album purchasers and some were only exchanged among friends, who promptly threw them in the trash. Highlights from this album include "Who Gets the Deer?" (the hillbilly-meets-drum 'n' bass track featuring samples of a 911 call where a redneck hits a deer in his car and encounters a hungry dog), "Vishnu's Revenge" (not-so-traditional Indian music), "Weapons Expert" (techno collage music), and "Sitar Crunch" (the first Rubber Band Banjo track EVER). We hope you are as embarrassed listening to these tracks as Rubber Band Banjo is releasing them.
