MUTANT SCUM “Field Recordings” available on cassette and digital formats

After countless hours of painstaking research, the Society for Estuary Waste Education & Research is proud to announce our preliminary audio findings of the creatures colloquially referred to as “Mutant Scum”. These field recordings were captured and mastered underground by Colin Colfer in March of 2015, and were released by Handstand Records under special permission from S.E.W.E.R.

Cassette and digital versions are available for home research through Bandcamp. You can also purchase cassettes and shirts at our public research event at Saint Vitus Bar on Sunday, September 6th, 2015. Admission is free and protective attire is recommended.
