Released only through John Flansburgh's Hello CD of the Month Club, this was Mono Puff's first venture into recorded music. The demo disc features six songs and runs about 10 minutes. The songs are rough demo versions of songs that eventually appear on "Unsupervised", and one that ended up on the "The Devil Went Down To Newport" single. The trumpet on "What Bothers The Spaceman?" was played by Jim O'Connor of They Might Be Giants. Other guest musicians include Nancy Lynn Howell, Jay Sherman-Godfrey, and John Flansburgh's wife Robin Goldwasser.
