Ethnomusicologists who require a more precise discography should note that overlord had two previous tape releases:[cassettes available from a box in my room]
- GREETINGS FROM CHEESEQUAKE, NEW JERSEY (8 song ep, Spring 1996) Follow up demo for producers and local clubs. Includes what is surely overlord's most offensive song "Baby Got Front" which includes the aphorism "Life is a cakestand." Is it any wonder they're still in the basement?
- OVERLORD & UNDERPAID (4 song ep, Fall 1995)
This first release was produced by George with input from TITO LAMARCK, leader of the trendsetting rock and funk band THE EROTIC SLINKIES and the industrial country band MAGNETIC WEST. It has garnered the attention of several major producers, including SCOTT MATHEWS (DICK DALE/THE LOVED ONES/JOHN HIATT/JOHN WESLEY HARDING) and MARK S. BERRY (HE HEADSTONES/VOIVOD/THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES), who was interested in releasing BEHIND GLASS as a single in Europe. Mostly, though, they were impressed with overlord's ability to drop names.
