YEOW was recorded while living on w. 136th street Harlem and attending City College. Thanks to Neil Zusman for letting me use that ol' TV studio. 45¢ espressos and $1.45 bocadillos. Vinyl LP released in '85.

LORE OF THE OXOWL, including the expressionist art of Reed Ghazala, was released in '89 (proceeding Ritual Tension's final recording of 'Expelled'). While Sloan recorded and played for Lower East Side groups Purple Geezus,Vital/Rats of Unusual Size, False Prophets, Carbon ('90-'96) and Stalwart (who later became the Metal Blade group Crisis) the first two Gawk albums were augmented with additional songs and are now compiled onto one CD YeowOxowl for maximum picturesque playing time. Also, the original Yeow pre-Oxowl vinyl record is available w/ approx. 34 minutes of eclectic cuts.
