The label told me to play this at 45 and it was total Chipmunk-core. Then I noticed it said, “For smoke and lightning, play this at 45.” Fair enough. Playing it at the right speed, it sounds like early Replacements worship—rough, speedy, and yell-y. The first track kind of dragged after hearing the lightning version, but the b-side is pretty good.
