Details
This recording was made in the Dutch Oven in early 2010, exactly ten years after we released our first cassette – if not improved we’re at least much easier to download. (The gratuitous nudity and blatant homoeroticism remain the same.) Originally titled “Bass Solo, Take One” to keep with our inexplicable Metallica/bass player theme this EP was changed to “TIME OFF” after our new bass player John, no wait, Brian(?) felt uncomfortable with that kind of pressure.* (And because Jack’s 3–-month Sudamerican sabbatical has so far stretched to two–plus years.) * Brian (yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s Brian) passed the new–band–member test not by learning the songs but by fixing our van, by the way.

Book
Author
By Craig Martin Billmeier
Details
The concept of the book stems from the underground punk practice of releasing "split records" where two like-minded bands each get one side of a record. Here, fellow punker Dean Carrico and I each got one half of a book. His half is called "Mad Cows Indeed" and exploits his student exchange time in Britain.
