  • Zero from The Abyss, NjDJ AM aka Adam Goldstein provides turntable scratches on this track.

    Hey Nick, I noticed that too! I wish OFFYY was available for release or download, it's awesome and sounds like old Deftones! YouTube it if you're curious.

    Less remarkable but still interesting is their first EP from 1994, Potatoes For Christmas (oddly enough, that actually IS available for download!)
  • Nick from Missoula, MtThis song is sort of a sequeal to the song "liquid diet" on their earlier album, i thnk it was "old friends from young years". Its refrence the the girl who was abused with forks knives and razor blades- was a basis to the earlier work.
