The YouTube video referenced in the runout groove of side D is “Once Upon a Time in Athens: The Legend of the Riot Dog”, showing various photos of Loukanikos, a stray dog that was present at many protests in Greece around 2010.
Sides A and B were recorded at Hotel2Tango. Tracks C and D recorded in concrete jamspace, mixed at the pines. All of it mastered at Greymarket.
