TLASILA Album Flood: Vedder Vedder Bedwetter

Hi Everyone,

Here's part three in the series of TLASILA back catalogue uploads.

Vedder Vedder Bedwetter (Contiguous Mix)

We'd envisioned the album as a pitiless, contiguous 70-minute bombardment. Fifth Column refused to release it without concessions to bourgeois norms (i.e., providing their audience of portly Fetish Night devotees a quasi-comprehensible, oft-demarcated product), and thus the conceit was dashed on the shoals of hubris.

Get it here.
