A BOX OF SKUNKS
being, so far as we know, the complete collected works of Yggdrasil In The Skunk-Ape Moment between 2008 and 2011.
WELCOME TO THE MOMENT
Recorded live at MarcStock, Bethel, VT, October 18 2008. Notice crackling contributions from the flaming inferno.
01 A SKUNK-APE IS BORN
A rehearsal for MarcStock (see "Welcome To The Moment"). Performed in a classroom where, less than a year prior, a skunk had actually crawled into the wall and died. The room had mostly stopped smelling by that point, though.

Performed at Prescott Tavern, Hampshire College, April 2nd 2008, for the Cosmic Primitive Presents "Letting The Skunk-Ape Out Of The Box" event. Background choir: Maceo Sphere Cantlin and Zelda Leigh Elizabeth Cantlin.
This track is actually titled "In the Favorable Month of the Male Earth Rat" and was dedicated to somebody. Performed in the Red Barn as part of the Skunk-Ape Shire Tour 2008.

Performed at the Hampshire College Tavern. During the 2008 Skunk-Ape Shire Tour.
Performed in the Skunk-Ape Shire Tour 2008 in the Hampshire College Dining Commons as part of a benefit for Heifer International. I am under the impression that we fasted for a while before playing. Michael is not. Michael is probably right.
