Stifled Man Casino 7'' (2001)

Stifled Man Casino 7''
(Fading Captain Series, 2001)

The second of two singles released off the Tower in the Fountain of Sparks LP. Limited to 1,000 copies on black vinyl, the 7'' contains two exclusive b-sides listed below. The 7" was rereleased  in a CD collection, Selective Services, later in 2001.

Side A:
Stifled Man Casino- Same version as one on Tower in the Fountain of Sparks. Read review there.

Side B:
Peroxide- 2 Noisy, garage jam song that’s over before it materializes into anything much. Long fade at the end. Pollard lyrics in which he says “Man” a lot.  Shrug.

Eskimo Clockwork- 1 Great title.  Piano instrumental played by Sprout. Sounds like an intermediate piano recital number mimicking a tv theme song. Goes nowhere, and a useless, uninspired b-side.
