New stuff since the last time . . .
DWARVES/ROYCE CRACKER – Split 7″ (zodiac) – I know the band wants to be shocking but at this point it becomes laughable and dismissive to do a bunch of songs about methamphetamines. Both bands feature Rex Everything aka Nick Oliveri, who has been in the news lately. Comes on orange vinyl, full color insert showcasing a meth lab and a fake bag of meth. Listen here via google search. Do you remember the Plastikman album that had a sheet of acid as the cd insert?
