From the aborted "Power Of Suck" LP.

From Jim Greer's old deleted blog (surviving in quotes over at https://officeofhearts.tumblr.com/):

"Steve [Albini] also convinced us to let his pal Jim O'Rourke come over and put overdubs on two songs with Jim's home-made guitar-noise making machine. He made a bunch of noise on "Bughouse and "He's The Uncle," and though I could tell Bob wasn't pleased with the results, we paid him $200 anyway. He was a really nice guy, too.

Later, when we got home, Bob decided he wanted to double his vocals on a couple of the songs on four-track, and add a guitar solo over the "noise" section in "He's The Uncle" (which was supplied by Tripp Lamkins of the insanely great Memphis band The Grifters)."
