Additional info
The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat is the second cassette by Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids. Only a few copies were ever made, and the cassette was never sold; it was given away for promotional purposes.

This tape has been the cause for much speculation over the years. Daisy Berkowitz has said on several occasions that Big Black Bus was the first official Marilyn Manson & Spooky Kids cassette, further fueling the mystery behind The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat's conception.

Only a handful of copies were made, and they were released only to friends of the band, and to club owners for the purpose of booking shows.

Side A featured tracks speculated to be re-recordings of tracks from The Raw Boned Psalms, as it was common for Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids to include re-recordings on the follow-up tapes. Side B contains a radio interview of the band conducted by Scott David in March 1990 for WKXP 88.5.

Like most early Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids recordings, The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat came in a cassette case with photocopied sleeve artwork. The interior of the fold-out insert featured an altered photograph of Charles Manson with the body of a woman, surrounded by 1960s-style clip art: flowers, butterflies, praying hands, the American flag, etc. The front cover featured clip art handguns arranged to resemble a butterfly.

The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat was considered a "phantom" release, with even Daisy Berkowitz claiming in a 1999 interview not to recognize its title. In 1997 an original cassette copy, owned by Miami's alternative club DJ Hypno5ive the first copy discovered to exist was sold in an online auction. It was purchased by an anonymous collector in Japan, allegedly for over $1000.
The cover of The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat is believed to be a fake.
