New York City's Serious Pilgrim released a total of three demo cassettes between Autumn 1989 and Autumn 1991... this second cassette, "Ibid," was released in the Autumn of 1990.
The tracks on Ibid have never been heard with as much fidelity as you're about to hear. Much like Serious Pilgrim's eponymous 1989 cassette, Ibid was never released on anything more than do-it-yourself cassettes with a front cover printed out from a photocopier (so even the cover artwork is sharper). Oftentimes, new fans were hearing these songs on the copy of a copy of a copy of a cassette, with the resultant increase of hiss and decrease of fidelity clouding the sound... but not the passion. Now, for the first time ever, these tracks can be heard as they sounded on the speakers at Laughing Dog studios, or down in Tom's Basement, over the sleepless summer of 1990.
Many people consider Serious Pilgrim to have been a bit ahead of their time... now you can hear their second output as it deserves to be heard.
