Notes

"Initially released in 2001, a decade after Skin Yard called it a day, 'Start At The Top' was a hand-numbered limited-edition CD that collected various rarities and previously unreleased tracks left in the rubble from 1985 through 1991. Included were compilation tracks, long out-of-print singles, alternate takes and never-before released recordings. A couple of the original CD tracks have been removed and replaced with new tracks not originally on the CD and never before available anywhere. Skin Yard assures you that these changes make for a much stronger collection all around! This version of the record has been completely remastered from the original source material and is available digitally for the very first time."

Tracks 1 & 2 are from the 'Start At The Top b/w Watch' 7-inch single, which was released by Sub Pop in Fall 1989 (SP47).

Track 3 is previously unreleased song, which was recorded on 8-track with Jason Finn on drums somewhere between September 1986 and April 1987 (Finn's time in the band). With different lyrics 'Jump the Wall' would go on to become the song 'Gentle Collapse', which was released on the album 'Fist Sized Chunks' [1990].

Tracks 4 & 12 are previously unreleased tracks that are unique to the 2012 reissue of the 'Start at the Top' compilation.

Track 5 is a previously unreleased song, which was recorded to 4-track during the Summer of 1985 with Matt Cameron on drums.

Track 6, 'Machine Gun Etiquette' was first issued on the 19 Track tribute album 'Another Damned Seattle Compilation', which was released by Dashboard Hula Girl Records in November 1991 (DBHG 002-2).

Track 7 is an outtake from the sessions for the album '1000 Smiling Knuckles' [1991] with Barrett Martin on drums. A very different version of 'Bulldog' was issued on the '1000 Smiling Knuckles' 10-inch single, which was released by Cruz Records on October 30th 1991 (CRZ 702).

Track 8 was first issued as a bonus track on the cassette version of 'Hallowed Ground', which was released by Toxic Shock in Spring 1988 (TXC-15).

Track 9 is from the 'Stranger / This Lonely Place' 7-inch single, which was released by Toxic Shock in Winter 1987 (TX-009 / TOX-009): Track 02 (Jason Finn on drums).

Track 10, 'Nietzsche with a Pizza II' (NWAP II) is an outtake from the sessions for the album '1000 Smiling Knuckles' [1991] with Barrett Martin on drums.

Track 11 is a previously unreleased song from Daniel House's pre-Skin Yard band 'Feedback', which was resurrected and recorded by Skin Yard with Jason Finn on drums (circa. 1986/87).

Track 13 is a different version/recording of the song 'No Right' with Jason Finn on drums (circa. 1986/87). A later recording of 'No Right' was issued as a bonus track on the CD edition of 'Fist Sized Chunks', which was released by Cruz Records on May 8th 1990 (CR-CD 009): Track 10.

Album

Skin Yard is the first studio album by the band Skin Yard. In January 1987, 1400 vinyl copies were released by CZ Records, mostly on translucent sand-colored vinyl, the rest on standard black vinyl to be played by radio DJs. This recording was the first engineering project by Jack Endino who was also the band's guitarist. Endino went on to record many of the most successful grunge records in Seattle.

Ten years after their split, one of Seattle's most influential yet overlooked bands, Skin Yard, issued an odds and ends compilation, 2001's Start at the Top. Billed as A Collection of Singles, Rarities, and Outtakes, the album does precisely what it sets out to do - clears out the vaults for longtime fans still clutching their worn-out, fifth-generation cassette dubs. As with most bands that put together such collections, several covers are included - a rapid-fire version of the Damned's Machine Gun Etiquette, a noise-makeover of Ace Frehley's &quo.
