An installment in the "It's a Fucking Boot" series of live LPs by this Japanese metal-punk thrash band, featuring members of ABIGAIL, SIGH, G.A.T.E.S, etc etc! classic! The first set of test pressings had a skip on them so side one of the LP had to be recut and new tests made before final LPs came out. There are really only 9 of the rejected tests around because Ii had to send one of them to the mastering people to prove it had a skip in it. And then United accidently pressed 5 extra tests for the second round of tests which is why there are 15 copies of that one! Sounds confusing, and it was!
