Liner Notes--Louisville's first punk/indie album. While a little tamer than the band's live shows, a pretty accurate representation, helped in part by being recorded live-in-the-studio with a couple pints of whiskey, each track done in one or two takes. The only overdubs involved a guitar part at the end of "Leave" and another in the noise break of "Corners"--which also received a blast of static from a short-wave radio. "Order" was dumped straight from a Tewligan's boombox recording. Unlike the Endtables, when told they were trying to push too much time onto the A-side, the band refused to alter anything, even when the flaws showed up on the pictured test pressing.
