"Trees of the mind- Collapse!"

This is another one for the completists, so if you don't already have this... Here's the semi-bootlegged Neanderthal/Blatant Yobs split. It's "semi" legitimate because it does have an address printed on it and was released with an issue of Ox fanzine. It seems, though, that Wood was severely miffed by the use of these two Neanderthal songs ("Mind Eraser" and "Brain Tourniquet") for this EP (there are no labels or inserts either, which certainly contributes to the bootleggedness of it all). So unfortunately there's nothing new here from the mighty post-Infest, pre-MITB, Neanderthal, but hell, if you don't have these tracks... get 'em! Blatant Yobs are a bit of a mismatch, and with a better guitar sound might actually have been good. However, the silly lyrics and Fischer-Price sound quality on the gits decreases whatever appeal their brand of rocked-out hardcore may have had. Like I said, this one's for the completists and the morbidly curious...

By downloading this you are promising to buy the Neanderthal discography from Deep Six when it finally does come out.

I´m nearly 100% sure that there was at least some explanation about the beef with wood published in the OX issue that came with that 7".

lyrics, etc. might have been printed in the zine, too? I´ll check that and if so I´ll send you a scan of it!

Man, that would be great!! I found this copy in a local shop, and yeah, the zine was not in attendence. Thanks.
