Every year scores of people are severely injured or even killed in household accidents, making an eventual all-out war on architects, household appliance manufacturers, and interior designers virtually unavoidable. However, until then we have to stay vigilant, so the Office for Domestic Preparedness has urged WFMU to post some educational audio to increase the domestic preparedness level of the American public. Domestic Preparedness has always been one of the prime objectives of WFMU, so we are more than happy to comply with this request.
Unfortunately, this magnificent compilation is out of print, and it is hard to find information or more music of most of the bands featured on it, but here is the whole album in MP3 format. As a bonus, you get a cover version of a song by Queen and a crash course in elementary logic.
