me: I would be. All those eyes staring at me.
jesse: I'm psyched... I need to play with those cats and vent some. This week has been mildly annoying...
Well, are they gonna close 'em during the Watery Love set?
me: Do you take out your frustrations on your baritone guitar?
jesse: Well, sometimes... I'm actually doing fine. This morning was a little weird, and I've been busy at work this week...
Seriously though: I'm not nervous.

Yo... exciting news. We were crawling out of a K-Hole and what did we find? Copies of Richie Records // TestosterTunes titles that were thought to be in short supply. So it's all going cheap. We've got monkeys on our backs and we need the cash.

4 releases
$17 by paypal to the US
$15 by check/m.o.

CLOCKCLEAN ER "Frogrammer" b/w "Early Man"
ps Cleaner's most tuneful offering backed with a twisted staple of their live show. Punish your mother.

TUPIDS "The Brutal Birthday EP"
Not much like other Stupids
records. More like the FACTORYMEN. Your copy might arrive with a bent cover. Hand bent by a member of the group.

from Philadelphia hard guitar group. Now bi-coastal. Keep an eye out for the forthcoming 12".

NT STUDENTS "Street Banger" cdep
Worthless live compact disc from 2006. Loud and slow and laden with the sound of shrieking girls wet for the Students.

So US residents should paypal $17 to TestosterTunes @ Gmail . com if you want it.
Individual copies of each release cost $5.50 by paypal to the US. $5 by check/m.o.
