While You Were Out

Time's Incinerator is the second album to be released by Soul Asylum in 1986. It is a rare cassette-only release which contains b-sides, outtakes and demos from the Soul Asylum and the former Loud Fast Rules days.

The album name comes from Soul Asylum's song "Can't Go Back" from the album Made To Be Broken, where the lyrics are "fifteen years later caught in time's incinerator... yesterday's worries are today's".

The five songs (denoted with a star) were outtakes from their 1984 debut album, Say What You Will... Everything Can Happen. These songs eventually made it to the 1988 CD release (and rerelease) of the album, which was titled, Say What You Will, Clarence...Karl Sold the Truck.

The final song on side two is an improvised live track by Madison, WI Hardcore band Mecht Mensch during equipment troubles at a shared gig.
