Scrote's last recordings run the gamut of his musical pursuits as mirrored in the other artists he's worked with - sometimes noisy, sometimes melodic, sometimes ambient, sometimes otherworldly, sometimes just straight up rockin'.
Recorded in Los Angeles, Scrote is joined on these recordings by bassist Brett Simons (Beach Boy Brian Wilson's band) and drummer Kevin Stevens (Neon Neon) with several special guests including longtime David Bowie guitarist/collaborator Reeves Gabrels, legendary MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, The Donnas' singer Brett Anderson, Foo Fighter keyboardist Rami Jaffee, Les Claypool percussionist Mike Dillon, and others.
