This EP consists of tracks cobbled together from an even earlier tape release which we initially denied any involvement in.

Once we started playing more often we decided that if we didn't have any merch to sell then we were pretty much wasting our time, so decided to release this as a CD-R.

Using our home made CD burner (nothing more than a Bunsen burner gaffer tapped to a car stereo) we would make about 10 cds before each show and we would refuse to leave the venue before we sold them all, a practice which would later earn us ill-reputation amongst the bourgeois promoters with no concept of 'hard work' and 'making ends meet'.

Original Cassettes recorded in Summer 2006 (for Punching Rash Zine Fair) and transferred to CDR for shows in december of the same year. We sold this CDR a lot at our early shows and it was later uploaded to Last.Fm (for free!), where it was the most popular free download for a couple of months running. Thanks to Tom!

Gay Unicorn was recently used as the soundtrack for DVS's new skate shoe advert -

A bunch of these early tracks can also be heard, covered by other groups, on our 'I play Gay' record.


released December 22, 2006

Recorded and produced by Joe Howe and Lachlann Rattray at The Bunt Club, Glasgow 2006.
