Welcome to this week's installment of ROADRUNNER RECORDS FACT OF THE WEEK, as told by Senior VP of A&R, Monte Conner. So, what has Monte culled from his memoirs this week? We bring you Slipknot's First CD. And it goes like this: Slipknot's first CD is called "Mate Feed Kill Repeat". It was recorded in 1996 and only 1,000 copies were pressed. Though it is widely available as a bootleg, original copies sell on eBay for as high as $450. The people that played on it were Joey (drums), Clown (percussion), Paul (bass), original singer Anders Colsefetti, and guitarist Josh Brainard. Josh also played on the Slipknot debut CD on Roadrunner and is pictured on the front cover in the black bondage mask. Some of the songs on "Mate Feed Kill Repeat" are: "Only One", "Slipknot" (which later became "(sic)"), "Gently", and a song called "Killers Are Quiet". The CD sounds little like the Slipknot you know and love today, so be careful before spending lots of money to get a copy. Chances are the band will never reissue it, as it is extremely rough sounding and really does not have a whole lot to do with The Knot of today. put that in your pipe and smoke it...Until next week...
