Unreleased (leftovers, scraps) from lulla and lulla's ugly cousin, Octonus.

Liner notes.

1. + (AKA The positive song) I had just quit a long standing job after a very bitter disagreement and at the brink of a freak out and realizations, I tried to write this as sort of a hopeful song. Of course, the sound turned out to be pretty much opposite of what I was intending, very dismal. I kept it around because it did turn out nice, just not at all hopeful. It brings back bad memories. On the "plus" side, later that nite, I was asked to come back to work.

2. Damn you, sunday nite, damn you - Just an acoustic little ditty reminiscent of how sunday nite makes me feel.

3. T pizzicato - 'Rotten music' outtake

4. Grim reaper crook - Hmm, yes, the first selection from 'Octonus': The experimental space band. So much came out of this 'project' and at the same time as lulla, so a lot of unreleased junk was not quite on par with the album. This, however, was just a song that probably could have been a B-side, but turned out to be a leftover, but eh.

5. I was the walrus - More Octonus. There's "three" versions of that Octonus album, including one with the bonus track on the 'special edition': 'Umbrella at noah's ark'. This song however was going to be on the second 'special edition' one and never was because there never was a second one. Deservant of a most hear.

6. Boring colour of a car for a boring man - Didn't fit or make the album/B-sides for Octonus. I love the title and song.

7. Been a fool - A dusted off, forgotten gem from the 'rotten music' period. This sounds very GBV-ish to me.

8. Bossomy - Originally called, 'Her bosom'. This is a socra outtake which had a nice idea, but was not really worked on. This is a fairly sloppy representation of the song. But, included here because reasons.

9. Ling la yu ting - Just a IGTLFLBM leftover.

10. I torched the amp - A representation of what was happening at the time - - - flyswatter

11. Old war veteran -Original - This is the original version of this song that was on, 'Rotten music' which was not allowed to be on the album at the request of the co-songwriter.

12. Hooker cop - Not really Octonus and not really lulla but has found a place on this collection. An enjoyable little jam, man.

13. Hacking - When gathering scrapped songs for an unreleased collection, you realize why it didn't make it. And you're happy you didn't include it. It was just a song from that period. Peter Jackson's cutting room floor is non-existent. That's why his movies suck. 'ABC' is barely in existent itself. Rare as shit EP.
