- From opener Cattle Decapitation's rendition of "Sonny's Burning" to closer Some Girls' "Release the Bats" (fitting that they would play the title track if you consider their popularity when this came out), Release the Bats is an excellent compilation tribute to The Birthday Party (Nick Cave's first band; see also: Grinderman). Only a few duds here, with highlights coming from the likes of Melt Banana ("Faint Heart"), The Chinese Stars ("The Plague", which previously aired in Episode #22), Error ("Wild World"), Celebration ("King Ink"; ex-Love Life), Kill Me Tomorrow ("Junkyard"), Daughters (see below), the aforementioned tracks from Cattle Decap and Some Girls, as well as this nauseating little ditty from T Cells that'll make your stomach swim.

- Lex does his best Danzig impression, which turned out to be stylistic foreshadowing for Daughters' 2006 album Hell Songs.
