Choice 6 volume set of selected recordings from the 1990s rehearsal session vaults of Rancid Poultry. A lot of these works under the banner of "The Winter Of Discontent" are full-on Krautrock meets post-rock with the attitude of heavy dirge stoner. There is also diversity to be found, and some surprisingly restrained sections. But, overall this is probably the heaviest of these discs.

CD-R: 4 numbered copies - released 25/3/2019.
