Total Shutdown - LiveOn Ecstatic Yod Records, should have came out 2 years ago but it took us 2 year to finish making each cover by hand, 3 stencil spraypaint, silkscreen, stickers, insert, dead brain cells. Live set at the Edinburgh Castle circa 2003 recorded by Eli Crews some time ago. Mastered and mixed by Weasel Walter. You can actually hear a microphone chord being ripped in half and buzzing 20 senconds into the first song. We were truly in our prime hear, Bob still had robot vocals and our songs were much less metal. Hear horrible heckling by scenesters Jay Kullman, Weasel Walter, Team and Matt St. Germaine, none of which are at all funny or entertaining to anyone.

    Reflections Total Shutdown's long in the making One sided 12" vinyl record album EP.

    For those of you who don't know anything about this, it has been something we've been working on for years, and has been cursed many times over by the government. But thanks to our hard work and Thin the Herd Record's endless bankroll and team of enthusiasts, we have prevailed.

    This record includes the only studio tracks that Total Shutdown has ever recorded and also includes many extra songs that we have not released before in any form. Blood red vinyl, with a powder blue silkscreen on one side. Silkscreen is of a drawing done by Bob Linder, cover art by Paul Costuros.

    This record is the first in a six part series created by Thin the Herd Records called the Full Body Cast Series: Sixth Degree Burn. Ours is the First Degree Burn and is the first in a series of six one sided silk-screened records to be released by the Olympian label. Once all six records in the series have been released, they will be selling a "box set - possible biohazard" of all six records together wrapped in gauze. Some of the other bands that may be found in the series are SUNN o))), and Growing.

    Only 600 have been pressed, 50 of which are reserved for the box set, and 450 of which are already gone. There may never be a repress (seriously, not a marketing magic trick). Get your hands on what Mike McGuirk of San Francisco Bay Guardian calls "without a doubt the best record ever printed on vinyl and sold to the general public!". (30 were made with different covers and sold at our bottom of the hill show in early Feb 2002). Was released Feb. 10th 2002

    Total Shutdown / Boxleitner split 7". Released by Bay Area's Zum Records and Olympia's Thin the Herd records (split release!).

Two of Boxleitners tracks were recorded with a digital 8 track, and one is live from Rockland in Oaktown. This was our first vinyl release. WHITE VINYL, Ltd. press 500.
