We have been blessed with a massive offering from the Gods! For the first time ever the debut recording of Earth are available in one concise, beautifully documented capsule.

A Bureaucratic Desire for Extra Capsular Extractoin contains the entire 1990 Smegma Studios sessions which are the debut recording from Earth. Previously available scattered via the Extra Capsular Extractions EP and Sunn Smps and Smashed Guitar CD. This essential collection contains every note from the infamous first Earth recording sessions.

Earth was founded by Dylan Carlson circa 1989 and in this infancy stages contained several different members including: Slim Moon, Joe Preston and even Dylan s close friend Kurt Kobain.

Unbeknownst to Mr. Carlson at the time was that his seemingly simplistic experimentations with heavy music would literally spawn an entire genre, style and sound borrowing from his musical theories. Of course we re talking about what is commonly referred to as Drone or Drone-Metal. From sunn 0))) to Pelican to Mogwai to Jim O Rourke the impact that the heaviosity of Dylan s tone and music has had is immeasurable. This collection of the very first experimentations/recordings is an important insight into understanding the birth of this sound as well as a glimpse of the foreshadowing for the thunder to come.
