You’re Gonna Die
Recently re- discovered as Mickey was going through boxes of cassettes. Melchiondo and Harford wrote and recorded this song on Mickey’s four track cassette machine at his house along the canal in New Hope, Pa in 1992.
Face Your Doom
Chris Harford was sent a recording of the song-with Daniel Johnston’s voice and guitar- by Don Goede, and with the engineering assistance of Joe UJJ (Chris’ housemate at the time, Joe also plays keys) Chris added guitar, bass, and backing vocals.
The song appears on Hyperjinx Tricycle.

The other version can be found on the album WAKE.
