v/a - vinyl noise beer vol. 1

released: 2016
label: triple eye industries

perhaps you've heard of triple eye industries. some of their signings can be found hither and thither on this very blog. i'm not going to tell you where. you look like a hunter,what with that sleeveless ted nugent t-shirt you seem to like wearing alot.

TEI (as folks in the know call it) has its headquarters in milwaukee,wi.
it's rumored that lenny and squiggy had jobs there once upon a time.
what do you mean by "who the fuck are they?"
get outta here!
kids nowadays.

but i digress.

the label has an annual multiple days fest that goes by the name TRIPLE EYE INDUSTRIES FEST that gets held in both milwaukee and chicago.
the chicago in illinois.
there's only one fucking chicago!
how do you keep getting in here?!


this is a compilation that was made for the 2016 edition of the fest.
and now you can enjoy it.
and now you'll be able to lie to your friends about attending.
if any of your friends get all "i was there and i didn't see you" just tell them that you were probably in the bathroom.
works for me every time.

v/a - river's edge movie soundtrack

released: 1987
label: enigma records

growing up did you ever have that one friend that didn't seem to say all that much and he always just seemed kind of awkward and he had a dark sense of humor? he'd tell jokes like "yeah. i finally went and did it." and you'd be all like "did what?" and he'd be all like "i killed her. she talked back." and then he'd start laughing and at first you didn't know if you should start laughing along but you knew if you didn't you just might get a pounding because he was bigger than you so you'd start laughing and laughing and laughing and then be all like "oh man! good one!" and he'd just still be laughing and laughing and then he'd stop and look at you and say "you wanna see the body? let's go. i'm driving. we're stopping for beer first." and then you'd see the body and then drive around listening to slayer until you could figure out what you were going to do about the situation.

if you answered "no" it's probably because you were that friend.
it's ok.
your secret is safe with me.
nice denim jack by the way.
