Written by ‘the roots of our roots’, ‘updated’ by us!
When this cover idea surfaced we didn’t feel like covering the bands we grew up on. Most of them are still around or reunited. It seemed much more interesting to go back one more generation and find early punk songs with a modern melodic vibe to them. The rhythm section was recorded live and we kept dubs and edits to a minimum. This is as raw/unpolished as we get in the studio! The cover artwork consists of conversions of the four original designs. Choose your favorite as front cover!
