This CRUELTY is a matter of neither sadism nor bloodshed
Systematically cultivating horror
-- cracking iron necks
-- rigor of cruelty
-- desperate love of blood
-- blind appetite
-- crushing and grinding
-- death is cruelty
-- this cruelty is a matter of sadism
Sheets Of Cruelty is one of the most obnoxious, aggravating, trashiest, and noisy-nerdy tapes in my catalog. Sound elements include a restaurant worker describing how to make a club sandwich, Moog Rogue synthesizer grind, gratuitous overuse and abuse of effects, tape distortion, Commodore 64 computer game sounds, microphone feedback, pounding drums, electric guitar noise damage, snippets from other Dog As Master tapes, and me yelling a bunch of stuff over the top of the whole random mess.
The titles were borrowed from Antonin Artaud.
Originally released by Scott Colburn on his Gravelvoice Records label of Bloomington, Indiana.
I mastered the tape on June 21, 1986, on a TDK MA-C60 Metal cassette.

Muzzy, warped and unpredictable, 'Songs About Jason' presumably is Dilloway's tribute to his 'Grapes & Snakes' cohort Jason Lescalleet – whose -disc 'Songs About Nothing' vied with Dilloway's 2-disc 'Modern Jester' for Best of 2012. Steve Smith
