On December 16th, 1997 Overdrive Date Master performed a very special Christmas show at Upstairs at Nicks in their hometown of Philadelphia. As promised, they did not use any instruments opting instead to abuse their vast collection of flea market records, analog effects and echos, and vintage amps.
This CD is the result of what happened that fateful winter evening...

This Pic is taken from the 2nd annual Holiday Show. David Didn't even put on his lab coat until the set really got cooking!
These Pictures are from the Big Bash Holiday show on 12/15/00.
Now featuring Casio Saxophone,
electric mandolin, as well as a doubleneck bass/guitar ODM still avoided playing
anything even remotely musical whatsoever.
Program Note: This CD was digitally recorded from a stereo cassette master. All dropouts, errors in level and panning, and surface noise have been impeccably preserved to force you to listen to what the audience had to deal with.
Final Warning: This album captures an experiment in sound and free form noise improvisation. If you'd like to hear our songs you might want to get our other album "How Can You be Sellout If No One is Buying?" NO rights are reserved. Copy/Listen/Laugh at your own risk.
