We recorded this in a day and a half. 2 if you count re-doing some of the vocals.
Both drummers had never played with us before.
We had fun. A lot of fun.
Best Defense: Holy hell. Even though it's just Canon In D spit through some powerchords with harmonies added, kinda still kicks you in the nuts.
Hardkorean: Not about Kat. She's not even Korean, you goddamn racist. She's Filipino. Garbage Island represent, son! I will say, though, you'll be hard pressed to find another pop punk song that mentions the prime meridian. High brow, that's our jam.
Teenage Bottle Rocket War: Written as a dare. A fucking DARE. We received said dare the night before our second show. The dare was to write a song before the show. We did, and this was it. Oh, it's about a bottle rocket war to end all bottle rocket wars. We were in the shit that night, my friend. Kat was walking wounded. I fragged a general. I don't like talking about it even today.
Anatomy: Okay, I like puns, do you get that? Chock full of 'em, this one. I took some heat for the line "I love you from the inside out, yeah" more than once. But, come ON you guys! The whole song is about anatomy, not deep dickin'. So let's all be civilized and just enjoy a sappy love song with science all over it. For once.
Don't (Call People Fag): Kat swears I told her the parenthesis would be funny. Now, I DO think they are funny, but I don't remember saying that. The song itself is pretty badass. Reconstituted from a song she wrote for a lucky fella's birthday, as I recall. Good stuff. Storytellers shit right there. I always liked it because of the beginning. Kat thinks she can scream better, but I think it's aces.
Kiddie Pool: Fuck you, lead singer of another band that wasn't very good to start with! How dare you mock the best show happening in Minneapolis in 2006. Know what? You just earned yourself a nasty song. Gonna call it Kiddie Pool. See how you feel about THAT.
Originally released on Johann's Face Records out of Chicago by our pal Marc Ruvolo, who decided to put out our record after seeing us get into a cake fight during a show.
True visionary, that one, and we sure do appreciate it.
