Gehenna - Hope Guzzo Bootleg 12"

From a group of Hope Guzzo's photos called "Layers" stems a live bootleg LP from Gehenna. These, as well as most (if not all) of her other artwork is available to view on her website, so I urge you to check them out. From the very first look at this, you can understand why this collection of art has the name that it has. Layers is almost an understatement for this one.
Inside the cover is a negative of the photo on the front, which is a really cool effect for this picture.
The LP is on purple vinyl, although it has many others colours swirled into it. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but it sure looks pretty snazzy. This is limited to 300 copies ever, although I do believe a few more copies are still available to buy.
To round of the package, an interview between Gehenna and Hope was also included. It spans across quite a few pages, and covers topics involving the idea behind the record, as well as Hope's art.
Of course this beast is raw as, it is Gehenna after all. The two sides contains recordings from different shows, but both are fantastic. I'd really love to see Gehenna live, especially if I had a time machine and could go back to the era these were recorded.
Along with this came a special version of The Gehenna/California Love split on red vinyl. I'll post about it in the days to come.
