a few years ago i inherited some mulitrack one-inch reels. or at least i inherited the joy of storing them. i've listened to a bunch of 'em, and i've made reference mixes of some stuff since the tapes could become unplayable or at least junked enuff to be unlistenable at any time. this is the first reel of two labeled gut piston, which both have gut piston on them (<--uncommon enough to be notable). more evil than the turks and a tad less grimy than econothungs, gut piston are one of the finest bands ever to barely escape lima, oh. these recordings were done at magnetic planet soon after gut piston's first show in columbus.
