Superman Curl

We’re Assholes

Amp

Ha-ha-funny joke. The band puts a sticker across the hole so, if you want to play the record you have to break through and force it down on the 45 adapter. Naturally they figured everyone would give up and pretend to have listened and give it whatever review they felt like. Well, Superman Curl, I listened! And I have this to say: next time you decide to send us a 45, make sure it’s something good instead of the Four Tops! That is to say, they simply camouflaged a commercial 45 and sent it out. Dicks.
