1992 - Deep in post-college wandering mode; somewhere between Guatemala and the coast of California; in a Subaru that needed a new CV joint, I took up an invitation to visit my friends, Peter and Tracey, in Lawrence, Kansas. With small bits of my fingers and half the engine sitting in Peter's driveway, I had only a Chilton manual to guide me back. So with good friends, and good music, I stayed most of the summer and got a job to pay rent. At some point, between nightshifts at the junkmail factory sorting crap by zip-code, I picked up this swell red tape of horny pop-punk. I had ventured far into Embarrassment territory.
Once I got the CV joint in and most of the Subaru back together I Traveled West playing that tape the rest of the way to San Francisco.
The car got towed by the city that fall, and I ended up staying there for 11 years, 3 occupations, 1 wife, and 1 daughter. And the tape made it back to Philly with us.
The other songs were rereleased on Heyday.
