Skin Yard "Inside the Eye" (5th album)

Cruz Records CRZ CD-027, issued on vinyl and CD summer '93. Now with Pat Pedersen on bass, and with Ben playing some rhythm guitar. Daniel House (who was no longer in the band) says he doesn't care for it much but plenty of other people dug it. There's some slayin' Skin Yard tunes on it, though admittedly ONE Ben song sounds like Gruntruck, which didn't really bother us that much. Recorded on Stu Hallerman's 2-inch 16-track Ampex MM-1200 at 15 ips... so, each SY record was recorded with a different tape format/speed/machine! The low end "bump" on this machine is at 35 Hz for extra fun. This record did pretty well considering that recording it (in summer '92) was the last thing we did as a band. As Ben has so succinctly put it in an interview, "Jack and I looked at each other and said, 'Do I want to be in a band with you for another 6 years?'" It was time to retire before some idiot tried to sign us to a major label! (A couple then tried but it was too late [phew], and of course they soon lost their jobs anyway...)
