"This CD is a compilation of Psychic Ills' first two releases, Mental Violence I and Mental Violence II. Both were only issued on vinyl in very scant numbers and disappeared in the blink of an eye, that is until now. Mental Violence I was issued in 2003 in an edition of 600 copies as a black and white hand number 7". It captures the band in it's prototype stage. At this point they were a two-piece with Tom Gluibizzi & Tres Warren playing everything and relying on synths and overdubbing to achieve the polyphonic madness that the band has become known for. Around the time of Mental Violence I Elizabeth Hart and Brian Tamborello joined Tres and Tom, bringing the current line up into focus. The Mental Violence II sessions at our own Junkyard Audio Salvage found the band defining themselves. These were intense days, the band's live shows were explosive as they navigated their changing ideas and band dynamics. Also featured on this CD are two tracks from around the time of these two early releases. The first, Highway of Death, is previously unreleased, while the second, Red-Split, has until now only been available as a track with the magazine Galactic Zoo Dossier." (label info) Back in stock.
