ET CETERA

"Lake District" (Europe)
    also known as "F.U.S.A." (U.S.A.)

"Spray on the Fixative" (Europe)
    a.k.a. "Telephone Diary Talker" (U.S.A.)

"Blinking Lights" (Europe)
    a.k.a. "Almond Dainties" (U.S.A.)

"Goodbye, Bunny Smith Square" (Europe)
    a.k.a. "Bye-Bye Bunny Smith Sq." (U.S.A.)

"Welcome Back, Eject" (Europe)
    a.k.a. "Rewind, Welcome Back" (U.S.A.)

"Shut My Mouth" (Europe)
    a.k.a. "Hospital Bruiser" (U.S.A.)

"Perks & Presents" (Europe)
    a.k.a. "Hair Messer-Upper" (U.S.A.)

The U.S.A. edition has two exclusive tracks: "Origami" and "Urbanism". The European edition has one exclusive track entitled "New York License Plate".


Originally recorded in 2001, this album was abandoned unfinished. Mark then got a telephone call in March of 2003 from Jan Lankisch from Tomlab in Köln, Germany asking him to release an album in Europe. He then completed the album and it was jointly released by Tomlab and Teen-Beat.

Mark's volunteer live-show second guitarist co-horts are thanked in the PACKAGE: "A six-string thank-you to:

Tom Ashforth,
(Europe, 2003)

James Baluyut,
(USA/NYC/Canada, 2000-2001)

Richard Baluyut,
(California, 2001)

Andy Comer,
(Teen-Beat Circus Tour II, 1997)

John Lindaman,
(Margarita tour, 2000)

Michelle Marchese,
(USA, 2000)

Chris Storrow,
(West Coast, USA, 2001)"


The drum samples on the song "Blinking Lights" are from Flin Flon's Boo-Boo album (Teen-Beat 274).
