And now a message from The Monolators themselves about the above performance:

Hi all:

For those who were at our Pehrspace residency with Sean Carnage in November–I don’t know how many of you noticed the extra microphone in the corner, but as a sort of spur-of-the-moment decision on the night of our first show we ended up bringing along my old cassette 4 track recorder and taping the show. The results were amusing enough that we decided to record our sets (and a bunch of the other bands’, too) for the entire month. I would say that while these tapes are not exactly remotely close to hi-fi, they pretty much sound like us.

If I had eight billion drillion buckerooos in a pile going up to the sky I would’ve edited the results into a single live LP’s worth of murky fury and put it out on splatter vinyl. But we are poor and so we’re going to pass along these recordings to you, unedited, for free download! Please recall that we played entirely new sets for every week of our residency and played nearly every song we’ve ever recorded, from our start in 2002 to the present.

We’re going to post a new week’s worth of tracks for every week of January–so here’s the first set, from November 3, 2008. During this week we played our very, very earliest material, circa about 2002-2004 or so. ALSO! For this show we had original Monolators guitarist Mike Dennis in the lineup! Here’s the set list:

1. Spandex Hitman
2. Spandex Hitman (again)
3. In My Dreams
4. Take It Outside
5. She Got Beat Up By The Floating Eye
6. Office Drone
7. Rejection Set Me Free
8. This Is Goodbye
9. When The Saints Collide
