    I listened to ONE WORD EXTINGUISHER for the first time
    this weekend (a CD I've had for a few months but never
    played it) after being given the EXTINGUISHED
    OUTTAKES. People have been saying "so these are his
    throwaway beats"? It's a toss-off EP, but for anyone
    who is into Prefuse 73, I highly recommend it.
