VA- Olympia Covers Cassette 2008

c. VA-Covers Cassette – A Who's Who snapshot of the Olympia music scene in 2008, this was a cassette originally “semi-released” by Electricity and Lust Records, but besides giving a few copies to a handful of the bands, it really hasn’t ever seen the light of day. I got about 18 copies from Michael Ryan (of E&L). All tracks (mostly Olympians) were recorded live through a buzzy old SUNN mixer into a tape deck in MR’s living room. Artwork by Joel Davenport and silkscreened on a mini-broadside.
