; ~Ever the dark duo of musical oddities, Boobs of DOOM set out in Xmas 2015 to document just two, almost opposing, facets of their oeuvre in the form of retro mixtapes.
The rules were:
1. no more than 60 min run time (to fit onto the classic C60 cassette format, see?)
2. no more than 12 tracks
3. at least one track from each of D(((O)))(((O)))M's six albums to date
4. one unreleased exclusive to annoy completists.
The intention being that these two 'tapes' would serve as a humorous way to introduce the band to new listeners, and make a merry-prankster style comment on the futility of trying to pigeon-hole any artistic endeavour.
The only person who found this funny, of course, was Sadsack. It was his idea. Thumper thought it was a fucking stupid idea.
Regardless, they exist. Here they are.
This is Sadsack's 'DOOM-HOP' tape. Supposedly representing the 'dancey' side of the band; big beats, fat bass, and squiggly noises, inspired by peeps like DJ Shadow, Massive Attack, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin & Public Enemy but, y'know, with weird heavy metal shit all through it. This is the Dance album that it's okay for Metal kids to like.

Sadsack reckons the DOOM-HOP tape is best because he “used to DJ and is pure gallus at mixing records and stuff ...OH ARSE! I've run over...”
