The Live At Irving Plaza vinyl includes a download code for both the Irving Plaza recording and Live At Artists Space, plus Coley and Moore's 20 page oral history of the band, Mars As We Know It, which includes interviews taken from the No Wave book. Pressed in an edition of 500. More details here.
