"Yes, Dump was part of the Lo-Fi-generation. Nothing makes that clearer than the bonus tracks to his follow-up album "I Can Hear Music". Recorded during the infamous dutch Fast Forward Festival in 1994 in - naturally - a living room, it contains all that was great about the few short moons of tape-hiss: colaborations triggered not even remotely by virtuosity (had Chris Knox ever played trumpet before that afternoon?); cardboard boxes as bass-drums; the victory of enthusiasm over perfection (have Half Japanese been covered with more emphaty?); Barbara Manning. The only thing that wasnt quite right about these first two Dump albums, was the format. But as justice doesn't know age, it's good to see these CDs finally being pressed on vinyl! They deserve it. After all, James is a friend. Did I mention he's playing bass in Yo La Tengo?" (Gregor Kessler) reissue of the legendary second album by the solo project of James McNew (Yo La Tengo) from 1994, re-mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma), first time available on vinyl, including bonus material. triple vinyl version, in heavy cardboard gatefold cover with printed innersleeves. also available on CD
