This CD is actually a combined label sampler for Asian Man
and Fuelled By Ramen, though it was released purely on Asian Man.
It's mostly ska-punk - take that as an encouragement or a warning
according to your preference. The tracks up to Nicotine's are from
Asian Man bands - well, Nicotine aren't on Asian Man but Mike who
runs the label wanted to help them out.
The last nine songs are billed as 'Fueled By Ramen bonus' and are
tracks by bands who had or were about to release records on that
label, which is run by a member of Less Than Jake. J Church's contribution
is one of the five Electric Light Orchestra cover versions that
they recorded around this time, but the planned EP never came out.

page for the full story.
