60 Second Wipe Out is the third studio album by Atari Teenage Riot, before their hiatus. This album showcased a newer sound, as Nic Endo had now became a member of the band. Fewer samples were used. Although heavily electronic in sound, the album was recorded on live instruments, that were then fed back and digitally altered. It was mixed by Andy Wallace and features a variety of guest artists including Dino Cazares of Fear Factory, The Arsonists, and Kathleen Hanna. The album was also issued as a double CD which featured a live show from Philadelphia. Other versions also featured the B-side "Paranoid", and "No Remorse (I Wanna Die)" (featuring Slayer) from the Spawn soundtrack.
Empire recalls working on the record with producer Andy Wallace:
I think it is very important for my music that it comes unpolished and honest... it wouldn't really work any other way. I remember when I worked with Andy Wallace (Nirvana and Slayer etc) for the third ATR album that we did for [Elektra] Records in the US. I really wanted his input on the sound, but we ended up sounding like Chemical Brothers or something... So it became 85% me and 15% him at the end... It felt there was only this one way possible.
