Two bands from Michigan both doing a good job at the “Jawbreaker-Leatherface thing.” This is another high quality product from Salinas Records, which has a tendency to release high quality products. Don’t you love it when you get a crazy hunch and it ends up being true? Like, you’re sitting there, looking at a 7” with a fish on the cover. And both the bands and the label are all from Michigan. And you ask yourself, “I wonder if that’s the state fish on the cover?” And then it turns out that Michigan’s state fish is the Brook Trout, and the fish pictured is a Brook Trout as well. And then it’s just like, “Goddamn, this record sure is cool.” I love it when that kind of stuff happens.
