about

It's the darkest Halo album, the last before the Y2K breakup, heralding the end of the 20th century with songs about lust, neurosis, paranoia, evil clowns, and disrespecting Satan.

Includes the guest-debut of future Halo member Queenie on rip-roarin' Nekkid Hoedown, "radio edits" that barely covered up the gleefully foul langage, head-scratching filler tracks, and the kind of overproduction you'd expect when we first got digital music software on a Mac clone in the 90s. Also includes a few one-take tracks recorded in the living room, because this is A Halo Called Fred.
