HUMAN SHIELD-Friend Of Sinners-(tape-Oral Gestation Artefacts-USA-1997)

Limited edition of 300 professionally-duplicated chrome cassettes with handmade packaging. Recorded live with no overdubs in two sessions, the first one with Zygurat Consortium and Andy Ortmann and the second with John Wiese and Beta Carrotene as guest musicians. 

Oral Gestation Artefacts was an experimental music label that existed in Saint Louis, Missouri from 1994 to 2001. 
It was founded to encourage local musicians from different music genres to experiment with one another in a free improvisational setting and to release recordings by such artists. 
It also encouraged sonic experimentation between musicians and non-musicians, as well as musicians who were proficient on traditional instruments to experiment with non-instruments. Artists studying at local universities also participated, and O.G.A. (as it was known) was also active in the mail-art and visual art genres.(info from Discogs)
