"Here's some background on this release: First of all, Mark Robinson ran Teenbeat Records in DC. I was a fan of some of his music, especially Unrest, and we were trading albums. He mentioned that he'd put out a single by Vomit Launch if we wanted. Second, we tracked these songs, along with a bunch more, as demos for what would be our third album - our first with Mad Rover Records and first working with John Baccigaluppi in the studio. When the demos came out pretty good, we decided to use a few for this 7" and then to recut them (besides 'Slits') for the next album. The Barbara Manning song was fun to play live, and kept following us around for years despite the fact that the girl it was aimed at was a pal of ours. Oh yeah, the third reason for this release is we had to have something out that year as we knew it'd be a while before we recorded and released our next album. And it did take some time..." -LC
