"COLLISION WITH TRADITION"

was a music compilation put together from a
collective group of artists and musicians located in New Haven, Connecticut.

The release showcased a versatile group of bands from the Tri-State area including a pre-Hatebreed group of Jasta 14, MINDWAR, SLIPKNOT, DISMAY, SPRING HEELED JACK, SHIV and others.

18 bands, 20 songs, 75 minutes of music,     this CD features only one BiG Mistake’s song entitled “electric”, which later became of the the band’s biggest hits.

The song “electric” made its way to this CD release before BiG MiSTAKE's actual album release of the song.  Why?  Slick promotion?  Well, it comes in two parts.  Part one is just plain promotion.  The second part is the result of the upcoming album "i" having been from the “record distributor”, AKA con-man, hence is what is known as the “CD Saga” with BiG MiSTAKE fans.

The quick version: you place an add, we send you our artwork, studio audio masters and money.  You never give us CD’s.  We then come after you.    The CD Saga is told in its entirety on        the BiG MiSTAKE Home Video.
