Here is some free / weird / unsellable stuff for your entertainment. For all proper War Against Sleep releases please see other pages on this site, Bandcamp etc.
This is a compilation of War Against Sleep radio sessions and live shows from 2002-2007. In those days we often took MiniDisc recordings straight off a live mixing desk, which usually sounded horrible because they lacked the balanced acoustics of the room. With: Guy Bartell (Electric Guitar, Accordion); Tom Bugs (Drums, BugBrand Instruments); Guy Fowler (Bass); Sean Talbot (Synth on Shamelady); Patrick Duff (Guitar on Evil Aliens; Andréa Hernandez (Backing Vocals on Evil Aliens).
