Limited seven inch vinyl single. What we have here is pretty incredible; this is a lost record from 1985. We didn't find the tapes, or the reels, we found the actual records!!! While working on The Great Rock N Raoul Swindle compilation tape, the Datchord label decided it was probably a good idea to make a "real record" if they wanted people to take them seriously. They got their good friends FOD and THE DEAD MILKMEN to record tracks for a split 7". Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the guys from Datchord had talked a young friend into financing the record on his parent's credit card, unbeknownst to them. Unfortunately the shipment of records and the invoice showed up at his parents' house while the young man was at school. The parents told him they sent the records back to the pressing plant but here- 30 years later- that young man came home to help his folks move into an assisted living home only to find the original records, the plates and the original xeroxed artwork in the back of their basement!!! He turned the components over to the bands and at long last, this split 7" 45 will see the light of day: we got the covers, assembled the records and they are finally ready for your listening enjoyment!
