ET CETERA

An outtake from the same session that did not make it onto the album was titled "Chewing Cloth."


RECORDING NOTES 2008

So on this album Greg Freeman, disgusted with us rushing through the recording process too fast, set a flat rate of some sort and did most of the mixing alone. Smart move. He also made us substitute "Wane" for "Chewing Cloth" at the last minute. Also smart, except that "Wane" was supposed to be spelled "Wayne", as we thought the song sucked, picked on it and named it after a Gary Larson Farside comic - 'The world was going down the tubes. They needed a scapegoat. They found Wayne.' But overall the record seemed to capture the band better, and we had gotten stronger after having played with Steve for over a year. The album title refers to an event due to Happy Donuts, down the street from Lowdown Studios and The Hotel Utah. We went there for a meal before a Hotel Utah gig, and Patricia and I ordered egg salad sandwiches. We both felt kinda sick, and during our show she ran to the handy toilet off the side of the stage and, uh, purged the foul sandwich and then continued singing. I had a slip of the tongue later, and referred to the sandwiches as exiled sandwiches, and it was too funny and stuck. Scud Mandrill's fantastic cover art shares the legendary tale with all and is still one of my favorite VL covers. Good times. We printed 2500 copies of this album, as the 1000 of Not Even Pretty sold out fast. We still had boxes of these left in 1992 and I think every band member got 50 or so!

I don't recall why these German record labels kept asking to license our albums, but they did. The guy at T42 decided he wanted to put out Exiled Sandwich, but wanted some artist (who the hell was Arthur Core?) to create a new cover. If I remember correctly, that took forever. We liked Scud's work better by far. Anyway, this guy puts out the album, no one in Germany cares, and we get another letter from someone saying they will never put out records again. Sorry. What the hell did he expect?"

- Lawrence "Larry" Crane, Vomit Launch.
