CUPS, THE: Children Unborn: CD-R

So the sleeve for the CD-R was the lyric sheet/liner notes folded up and wrapped in packing tape. What the hell? For the same cost as the packing tape a cheap plastic sleeve could have been used and I would be graced with some knowledge about the record (I’m still not sure if this is two songs or three) and it would have been much less labor-intensive on The Cups’ end of things. Griping aside, the three (two?) songs on this are pretty good: straightforward hardcore with an early-’90s sound, but the mix is very tinny. It kind of reminds me of a faster version of 8 Bark without their sense of humor. I liked it.
