Been thinking this for years, and this just might be the proof I was waiting on! Especially if you consider what the Rep's age would've been in 1996, odds are his voice would NOT have sounded that thin and "young". Also, considering the "jump" in his voice between the Twelfth Apostle-era and the solo voice albums, it's obvious those  things were years apart!

Maybe. Or maybe he recorded the motorbike and later sampled it on WBR?

I like  the idea that WBR is from before '85, somehow. I don't know, the 
idea that he has tons of old tapes from way back when, and he releases them 
when he wants to is a cool idea to me.
