about

All 10 discs from the limited edition Books on Tape boxset.

Plus 21 hidden bonus tracks, only available with purchase of the entire album.

In the early 2000's, Books on Tape was one of the first breakthrough stars at Deathbomb Arc. While his no-laptops, all hardware approach felt punk at the time, it is the standard for many today. The true godfather of beatpunk (hey, he coined the term, so we're claiming this one!), BoT aka Todd Drootin toured North America countless times, also released albums on visionary labels like Alien8 and No Type, and played with Captain Ahab, Shonen Knife, Animal Collective, OOIOO, John Frusciante and more. But the formal releases and big shows hardly tell the entire story. Books on Tape was also relentlessly creative, and dropped dozens of home made CDr releases, online only releases, lathe cuts, and more.

For this boxset we dug through the archives for months and found 10 discs worth of material that fewer than 20 people have probably ever heard. You get: 10 discs, 170+ tracks, 12+ hours, 2 full and 2 partial live shows, 5 non-BoT alter egos. Almost all of it never released on physical except compilation and super limited stuff. Overwhelming chaos!
