Variants:
The actual cassettes are mostly different, some are random re-used cassettes, some (maybe the later batch?) look like they used new Maxell cassettes. Some had different inlays. Some had different track lists... some may even have had demos from other bands dubbed on the 'B' side....

...Confused? Us too, so we messaged Jonah, here's his reply: 

Jonah: So that demo, and I can't remember why exactly -- I was supposed to make the covers for the first batch at some show we were playing. All the images came from a book I had about Italian Cinema, and a book about Japanese Cinema, as well as an old collection of one of William Randolph Hearst's doomed LA newspapers. The names (of the tracks) came from Mike, but were changed after the initial run of tapes to what's on the "official" demo. I think to do with extra lyrics being written. This was the very first run, of which there were a few different covers/interiors. I can't remember exactly which are which though ha.

I believe they were sold and given away, and I specifically remember having them at an unrelated El Mocambo (old venue) show, but who knows hahaha.
good luck!

This one allegedly had a certain demo by NO WARNING on the 'B' Side

This one shows an example of the 'Italian Cinema' inlay artwork...
...it seems to be one of the later batch of cassettes - the track titles match the "official" demo as per the EPICS IN MINUTES comp...
...and it's on a new Maxell cassette rather than a dumpster one.





Notes: 

1. Breakout Fanzine (the label for this recording) was one of Mike Haliechuk's projects
2. All lyrics written after recording took place (see enlarged liner notes below)
3. Note also the hand-drawn sigil (be careful not to look at it as it may be dangerous)
