Happy Moments

People freaked the fuck out when news of this LP broke. I'm talking about this new full length from Californian rippers/superband Low Threat Profile. This is "Product #2". Deep Six Records. White wax of 100. Now if you aren't familiar with this band I suggest you do a little research via the Google machine and then make your way back here.
Now, most of us know the story with this bands prior release, the "Product #1" 7" that came out at the end of 2009. The material for that 7" was recorded in something like the year 2000 (possibly even earlier) but was never released for whatever reason until 14 months ago. Everyone had heard of it though, heard the rumours, sampled a couple of the tracks online etc. I don't think anyone knew about this material though. I got a newsletter from Deep Six stating that this LP was about to drop and like most other people I talked to, I was somewhat dumbfounded, and very curious.
Well, as you can see, the music here was recorded in 2000, and Andy laid down the vocal tracks last year. As a result he sounds suitably older and a little more haggard. Granted he must be nearing his late 40's now (he looks even fucking older), he's doing pretty well. Certainly not as urgent sounding, but his great tone and rasp are both still there.
I have to say though, that his lyrics in some places are getting cheesy as fuck. It must be an old age thing. I don't want lollipops and rainbows, I want acid spitting and brick throwing.
"You've just been Deep Sixed".
