The Joysticks Battle The Scan Feed Relay To Your Skull
After an article was published in the City Paper, The Joysticks attracted the attention of a local rock-based label, Hometown Records. The label requested some recorded material, so The Joysticks sent them a modified version of Pearl Jam's "Vitalogy." The compact disc was scratched, slightly bent, burned from fireworks, and labeled with a small Joysticks' sticker. It produced a variety of clicking noises and the sounds of lasers misreading information. The music created by "Vitalogy" depended on the compact disc player that was used to listen to the product. This conceptual release was packaged in the same packaging that Pearl Jam used for their album, except there was a picture of The Joysticks taped on one of the pages.
