From Lance's original J Church website: "It's kind of
heartbreaking to think about it. Reminds me of a time that was pretty
sad and reminds me of a time I really loved (and lost forever).
Sorry, I don't mean to get all emo. But I can't listen to this record
ever again. It's the soundtrack for my sorry excuse of a life. Night
Time I recorded with Kevin Army for what was going to be
the third Monsula album. It never happened (thankfully) and I kept
my acoustic ditty. Wade from Corduroy drummed on this stuff. First
1,000 on black vinyl with maroon and silver covers. It's being repressed
with colored vinyl and a different cover."
The song that Lance couldn't listen to in 1994 has been since re-recorded
twice and they certainly play it at enough shows. Planet
Earth is the Duran Duran cover that used to be shouted
for a lot at gigs but which was never played because it was too
complex to repeat live at the speed it was recorded.
It's not possible to confirm which pressing the cover above belongs
to but either way it's definitely one of the band's worst - though
still way better than the split 7"
Floyd, of "calls me on the phone" fame, is the MRR writer
/ Fat Wreck employee / general Bay Area scene elder-statesman who
who has given his name to a number of records over the years, including
the More RPMs Than Floyd On A Scooter
sampler and, more famously, Lookout Records' The Thing That
Ate Floyd compilation.
Don't confuse this 7" with the British
EP of almost the same title.
