about

Title One recorded "twenty song e.p." during the recording of "Unimplemented Trap." It was created as a sort of improvisation/dada experiment. The music was recorded as it was created - live to a four-track cassette recorder. A month or so later, after tracks were transferred as two track/stereo mixes into the computer, parts were revisited for lyrical content. Many of the lyrics were taken directly from out-of-date instruction manuals, old textbooks, or the like. It became a process that allowed Title One to attempt whatever came to mind i.e., singing "I've never sung like this before" in as many different ways as possible or reading three different plays at the same time. The band played several of the tracks during live performances: most notably track 13 - what en hoe (in het engels), track 5 - kick-butt pajama boy, and track 20 - a mixture and a compound.

The CD case covers were created from pages taken from books out of a free bin at a local used book store. So originally, each case had a different cover - with the same info on an area on the back of the case. It was designed so that the cover art was from recycled/discarded/collaged materials.
