"There are worse things..." was created on one day in mid-december using only a guitar and a Digitech RP-90 effects pedal. A cell phone was also used on one of the tracks. The end result is manic no wave noise frenzy. The title of the album is taken from a Bukowski quote. Front and back photos are by Distorria Mordred. All audio created, manipulated, and destroyed by Royce Icon.
