Liner Notes For Severe Platter Damage!


It seems that with MP3s and streaming that the liner notes of the lp and cd eras in recorded music have been going extinct.  I really enjoyed reading Fuck Facts, for example, that The Dead Kennedys used to tuck into their albums or a surreal story that Robyn Hitchcock would thrown in or even Sting just including the lyrics and some background info on the songs.  I have encountered some great liner notes as of late, but it's rare.  For example, I've really been enjoying the Jon Savage liner notes for the series of 1960s and 1970s music compilations that he's been making for Ace Records.  Inspired by the hope of keeping the art of liner notes alive, I created 58 pages of liner notes for Severe Platter Damage.  You can download them or just read them at  I made the font big since I didn't have to worry about cramming a bunch of text onto a cd booklet or whatnot, which is one reason for the page count, so you won't need a magnifying glass to read these like would sometimes be the case on some cds and even lps.  The notes just include the lyrics and some background on the songs, but it should be fun for anyone who likes the album, which, of course, you can listen to here:

If you really miss the good old days of vinyl, then you can order the Yeast? 7" here:
