I used to drool over this kiss the stone catalog I somehow got sent in the mail

Happy to hear 25 years later that most of those discs were probably absolute trash

Also had the two “Beastiality” bootlegs:

complete with those unlisted “sex show” tracks at the end where some like 12 year old kid read penthouse letters or something to his robot friend Gabby-D. Not sure what those were about, if that actually was the beasties/beastie-related or some kind of performance piece done by the bootleggers...

Went to a small record show recently and a guy that only sold bootleg cd's was like the loneliest guy there
