Details from Matador's Annotated Discography:

Dave Rick: I went in and recorded a bunch of guitar stuff but all that got used was the stuff I did on "Let's Compromise".

Some people think President Yo La Tengo is the best YLT record. Even Elvis Costello played "Drug Test" as a guest DJ some time ago. A few people have cited New Wave Hot Dogs as their favorite, but they're either Dutch or drunk, or both. Or just drunk and Dan Cuddy. -Georgia
