PEEPS! the band
|||||PEEPS! - We Won't Take the Bus||]|
i had to bitch at him for an hour, but the dick behind the media counter at meijer finally cracked open the shipment and there's a fresh copy of wewinatlife in my hot little hands.
i'm pretty damn pleased with myself. so far, so good. the US-exclusive tracks are pretty solid, especially the GNR cover (i wasn't expecting much of this one, but damn, dude, they pulled it off,) and the classic stuff is perfect quality.
noted so far;
-- 'labor day' is track 15, apparently an unlisted bonus
-- the english version of 'matador suite' holds up surprisingly well despite the transition
-- tracks 2 and 7, 'hamilton steve' and 'the night's dark night' respectively, are NOT the original recordings. nothing in the composition or performance has changed, but you can tell by the sound and inflictions that its a separate performance from the original import album. does anyone know why this is? i'm assuming quality reasons...
-- for any Goatkill fans, listen closely to 'and the moonhouse' carefully between 1m21s and 1m35s for a keen surprise
that's all i've noticed for now. i'm pretty happy with how its turned out. here's hoping the sales pull through.
anybody else snagged a copy?
