Around 2000, Mass Dist made 2 comps highlighting and hyping our many releases.
The first - Comphellation 1 - was put together primarily by Jonah. He's so awesome at putting together mixes and this one flows together really well.
The second - Comp 2 - was spearheaded by myself. It is a mess! 67 tunes over 2 cds. Tons of noise, tons of our friends, and tons of weird edits. It made sense to me at the time.
Look at this insane list of artists on these comps:
Elf P Godbois Donkey Dissaster Deer Hoof Raw Dog Rex and the Family Devil Music Don Lenon Tunnel of Love 2000 Flushes Craig and Tim Mike D Blind Mitre The Judds The Grand Island DJ Skatological ACLSDC Bull Roarer The Frogs Tuttle Music Jimmy Cousings Tristan Dunster Eloe Omoe J.K.

They did it. How psyched was I.
Exclusive music from The Druid, Mix Ape, Force Field, Meerk Puffy, Mystery Brinkman, Hi I"m On Fire, M.O.R.B, and Lightning Bolt
This mix gives a unique window on a normal day at the Fort - a life changing psychedelic show space art studio etc loft in Providence, Rhode Island.
Ps. I do want to add that Matt got mad at me cause he thought I was making a 5 second song comp. There was a communication breakdown and I felt terrible that Matt felt terrible. We've hung out and had awesome times a million times since then and are cool but I do want to be clear that Im sorry this happened and I never meant to mislead him or steal their juice. What I wanted was interlude music in between the mass dist music, but I have had a tendency to miscommunicate. I hope in some way that this blog post, by compiling only the Fort Thunder music, puts the music in an entertaining and satisfying light.

Wm Berger was a beloved friend, musician, and longtime WFMU DJ. His long-running program, "My Castle Of Quiet," had its own Free Music Archive curator page which is home to more than 200 live tracks from his radio show. He will be remembered for his good humor, kind spirit, and devoted love of music and film. He was well-known at WFMU and his legacy will not only live on through the WFMU archives and the lasting influence he made on everyone he met, but also the music he added to the Free Music Archive for posterity. He will be dearly missed.
The Free Music Archive would like to honor Wm's diligence and dedication to the experimental, heavy, and complex sounds he loved. Find them all here.
