With the runaway success of the last album, The Slick Overproduced Commercial Pop Thing™, it became important to Buttersville USA that we get the band out of rehab (again) and get them back in the studio for their followup, as stipulated by their contract.

Again, I had the unenviable task of reaching out to the band. They were all battling the demons of their addictions. Jon had his peanut m&ms and diet coke habit totaling thousands of dollars. Buzz had his hookers and blow, but supplemented the money he was losing by starring in low budget gay space alien nazi midget watermelon porn. Choc was consuming 12 belgian waffles a day and would only come into the studio if we plied her with more waffles, which we had to fly in from Belgium.

That's not to say we had an unhappy experience. It was bizarre, fraught with drama, exploding farm animals, and a bunch of drunken scottsmen who talked me into "going commando," which started a huge brouhaha with Choc Van Shake, who had to be coaxed back to the studio with fresh maple syrup and Hello Kitty underwear.

We only got them to record six tunes, but then had to mine the vaults once again for material to complete the album.

We turned to the Buttersville USA vaults once again to find another semi-completed album, culled from their super indulgent heyday.

The album SMIRK was supposed to be the Ultimate Butterscott Experience™.

However it went over severely budget, and their producer, Murray The P, had the kind of nervous breakdown that would make the Kardashians look like Amish prostitutes.

Some of those sonic experiments are included here. We also included a few theme songs for pilot episodes that were never picked up, as well as their unaired appearance with Tom Waits on the Muppet Show.

Fret not, Butterbees!! The band isn't breaking up. The fine folks at Buttersville USA have, once again, spared no expense in getting the band back in the studio to satiate your Butterscott Sweet Tooth and are under contract to deliver albums for us until years after they shuffle off this moral coil. You have our guarantee, even if we have to trot out the inevitable double live album..

You want product??

Here it is.

I give you The Somewhat Disappointing Contractually Obligated Followup™

Grab a spoon and dig right in!

We recognize that a lot of you are completely out of touch when it comes to the profanity laced, innuendo filled pablum that our teenagers of today crave, therefore we spared no expense to alert you of a few songs that contain words we wouldn't want you to say around the rest home. Songs with this symbol "Ω" has been deemed unsuitable for airplay, though we truly feel that this album should be pretty much ignored by anyone with taste.

Track Name: The Buttersville USA Academy Fight Song™
Please rise, put your right hand over your heart and repeat after me:

Pugnacious, litigious and insane,
Pernicious, avaricious and obscene.

Viciously, duplicitous has been,
Ungracious and voracious plastiscene.

Dictacious and loquacious mouth latrine,
Malicious, prejudicious drama queen.

Now play ball!!
