This is the final recording from the Lord High Fixers. Tim Kerr and Mike Carroll stoked the fire begun in Poison 13 into a five alarm blaze when they joined with Robbie Becklund, Stefanie Paige Friedman and Andy Wright to start the Lord High Fixers. After a burst of 7″, 10″, compilation tracks and the “Is Your Club A Secret Weapon?” LP, In The Red Records posthumously released “In The Beginning…” on CD.
Omentum Records was started with the goal of pressing “The Beginning Of The End…The End Of The Beginning” as a 2LP. All tracks from the original CD are on sides 1 to 3, and the bonus tracks on side 4 are covers that have not previously appeared on vinyl.
Plenty of folks attempt to describe the ambitious sounds found in these grooves as punk rock, garage rock, funk, free jazz, blues, spoken word, etc…let’s just say every attempted aspiration was completely achieved. To quote the liner notes by Mr. Bryon Coley: “…you better get yr ass down and memorize this album. Because there is going to be a quiz on the way out. And we’re gonna run it. Sooner or later.”
