This 1999 Nerd Rock Music release contains the music from the opera of the same title. Staged in March of 1998 in San Francisco, The Figshta Diaries tells the musical story of a girl's painful rejection by her family and society, her loss of mental health, and of her ultimate, if ambiguous, psychic redemption. Songs include the rec-room minimalist bounce of "Figstha", the synth slide guitar mind warp of "Gigglefat Carbuncle Smile", and the nervous funk of "Baby Butt Baby".
