Album Notes
This the digital version of a 3 song EP that came out as a split 7" colored vinyl record earlier this year with our friends Satanic Overlords of Rock and Roll from Houston, TX which was released on Self Destructo Records. We mashed up the two band names and the outcome was "Rock 'N' Roll Depression".

What we have here are 3 fast paced punk and roll barn burners that may remind you of early Ramones/Dead Boys/The Saints. Recorded live with the band all playing in the same room at Cup 'O Pizza Studios in San Jose by Neil Young. We decided to put mics on the instruments and play as if it were a show, avoiding overdubs and edits which are overly common these days. The kick off track was written the day Lemmy from Motorhead died. We had rehearsal that night and thought it would be cool to write a song in his honor as a thank you for how he influenced our lives and rock and roll as a whole. This very recording was tracked on that night, litterally minutes after it was written. From idea to finished product was a matter of a few hours. Track two is a singalong poking fun at hipsters, the overnight cool kids with nothing to offer culturally. There are some hints of early pub rock/mod influence as well as in your face 70's style punk. The closing track is an upbeat heavy hitter with bouncing basslines, fast downstroked guitars and tight drumming. Lots of screams that may remind you of Stiv Bators of the Dead Boys. This song goes out to local bands who never really took off, they threw in the towel and picked up a drink. Maybe in that order, maybe not. Either way, it's a shame when you see a band with so much promise never get their due because they gave up, drank too much because of it, and hate on other local bands that actually put in the work.
