 Here I gonna attach some info about this tape -info sent me straight from the musicians:
"This was a tape release of our first CD which we intended to be an lp minus the 7" tracks (it contains tracks from our second and third 7" but not the first. Also a comp track.) The vinyl never materialized (a long story why)
It was released by Cryptas Records out of Mexico city. It was never really distributed in the USA and a very limited distributing in Europe, i think.We basically send people the CD and told people to feel free to reproduce."
