the guile started out life in medina as the flukes, and released a coupla things (watch these skies) before changing names. this cdep was released at the same time as a 4-song 45 which i'll get to as soon as i do. joe writes the most amazing and warped popsongs into which his cohorts inject even more amazing warpedness. the day they came over to record their drummer looked like he turned completely off between takes and then would play each song entirely differently each time, blasting off after four bored stick clicks, always faster than the one before. no wonder the guitars are so perfectly fucked, i have no idea how they keep up. evidently joe had only been in a barbershop quartet before starting the band.
