The 4th album by the Richmond Avant Improv Collective. Sort of an "odds and ends" album, this album features many songs which just did not fit in other places. It includes a song "Il Delirio..." that did not quite make a compilation appearance, 2 other studio songs, 2 remixes of previous material by Shame and Joe Limbus and 1 live recording which was a collaborative effort between RAIC and the wonderful local band Rumput. We have tried in true RAIC fashion to make these odds and ends come together as a beautiful, cohesive whole. We hope you, the listener will agree.
