    Thanks. The cover is a photo our drummer took back in the '70's.

    Wait, you mean you can have old-looking photos without using Instagram?

    The fact that it's an authentic 70s photo just gives it that much more punk cred.

    Haha, I'm guessing that's some program to artificially "age" images? I'm pretty tech-challenged.

    The back cover is a photo of a long line of bobbies lined up along the edge of the pitch at a football match riot, taken by our drummer from roughly the same period, but in England.

    Thanks for lookin fellers.

    Yup, it's a free app that allows you to apply various digital filters to your image. It seems mostly used by young hipsters to make their photos look "retro" (read as "from the 70s) to a time period they artificially nostalgize having never actually lived in it.

    Ha, makes me wanna put on a moth-eaten cardigan and crack open a cold PBR, while massaging oil into my latest tat.

    I suppose eventually hipsters will have their photos painted over to look like Norman Rockwell paintings and ultimately have their photos look like cave drawings. Can't get much older school than that.

    Haha, reminds one of the lyrics to the Cure's "Jumping Someone Else's Train."

    Love the cover dude! Could easily have been the cover of a long lost Dead Kennedy's album.

    Very nice Brian. I did a little prelistening of the tracks. Lots of fun stuff. "Make Haste Slowly" espicially stood out and "Nigel Book Us Dammit" is a hoot. Looking forward to hearing more of it. Thanks!

    Good call. This line in particular... "If you pick up on it quick, you can say you were there"

    Think I may have to listen to that album today. It's been too long.

    Haha, "Nigel Book Us Dammit" was the first track I went for too I'm working my way through all of them, but I'm liking them a lot.

    Not that it's much of an endorsement, but I'd come check you guys out for sure. You know, if there wasn't an ocean and tens of thousands of miles between us

    Thanks Ch0jin, the sentiment is much appreciated!

    I have a feeling Nigel will never speak to me again.

    Oh well, he wouldn't before either!
