3 LP set is limited to 1000 copies and housed in a heavy deluxe box. "Laddio Bolocko were f***ing awesome" - Pitchfork "Seeing them live was akin to walking in on the Aurora Borealis captured within the walls of a dive bar - beautiful, captivating and wonderfully overwhelming" - CMJ Music Monthly "The sound of what post-rock should've become." - San Francisco Weekly Laddio Bolocko existed in a different New York.

Formed in 1996, shortly after relocating from St. Louis to the DUMBO section of Brooklyn, the members immersed themselves in their music - living together in a dingy, windowless basement - constantly rehearsing and recording.

Those recordings - which combined the aggression of punk, the rhythm and texture of kraut rock, and the ambience of early 80's experimental noise (This Heat, Throbbing Gristle) - sound as fresh and relevant today.

The bands two official albums were collected on the 2002 release The Life and Times of Laddio Bolocko, but everything on this collection is previously unheard.

Culled from a suitcase full of tapes and edited by guitarist Drew St. Ivany, it showcases the intense, productive lifespan of this short-lived band.

Additionally, a DVD is included which features over two hours of live performances.
