Dub 56 is one of the most famous Toasters albums. It has a long, winding, screwy story behind it. The first version that was released contained some tracks that were written/sung by Coolie Ranx, later of Pilfers fame. However, he left the band shortly after the album came out, and Moon decided to repackage the album minus Coolie's contributions, but with some bonus tracks (from the Live in L.A. CD...which we will get to shortly). The resulting CD ended up being the most commonly available version. The disc has now been re-released many times over, in many different forms, with all kinds of bonus tracks along the way. The Megalith versions contain the Recrimintations EP and the Pool Shark EP, among other things.
