THE PERFECT LAWN


- 2012 -

Because of continued requests, Skin Yard guitarist Jack Endino sorted through boxes of old tapes to assemble this “live history” of the band. The heart of the record is five songs recorded live to an eight-track machine on New Year's Eve 1990, plus two songs recorded at KDVS in Davis, CA, and two songs from a board tape recorded during the band's final tour in Europe. These first 9 tracks on the record are almost studio-quality and capture the band at its live peak. The remaining tracks are from other sources of varying fidelity. The CD is in reverse chronological order because the later recordings sounded the best. However, there are a few early recordings at the end that feature Steve Weid and even Matt Cameron on drums.
