Cannibal Ox - Painkillers (The original unreleased version produced by T1 of ShelShock)
I did some more digging in old tapes today and uncovered this forgotten about never before released gem
Not mixed, not mastered, off an old cassette… so the sonic quality isnt all that great
If I remember right this was recorded sometime after Ox started recording Cold Vein with El-P. I think they had already released Iron Galaxy b/w Straight off the DIC joint single with Co Flow but hadnt recorded much else besides those two songs, Metal Gear, & Pigeon for Cold Vein. So this would be around late 99- early 2000 that they recorded this at T1s studio. Obviously they later re-recorded Painkillers for Cold Vein with El but this version has a completely different Vordul verse and a longer Vast verse than the Cold Vein version, and obviously a completely different beat.
