This is the extended digital download version of the 1990 12" vinyl release of 'The Dog's Breakfast' by He Dark Age. It was the second full length recording by the band after 1986's Ecce Homo cassette only release.

The masters of this record were long ago lost, so the versions here are simply rips from the LP itself done by someone, somewhere, sometime. As a result, the quality is distinctly lo-fi (it comes complete with pops and crackles). So, if you want to hear a better quality version of the album, you'll need to purchase the vinyl.

The digital version of the album does at least come with bonus items being demos of many of the songs and other songs recorded at the time that did not make it onto the album. The later songs are merely cassette rips so, once again, the quality isn't the greatest.

The album itself was mostly recorded in 1989 at home on a Fostex 8 track quarter inch multitrack recorder. There was no proper mastering of the mixdowns, so the record was very nearly not pressed because of problems at the mixing plant. That was our fault, but eventually they pressed warning that the resultant vinyl 'could blow people's speakers'.

So buy the vinyl and test out their theory (*HDA assumes no responsibilty for blown speakers)
