So today is the release date for the newly remastered Gates – You Are All You Have Left to Fear ep. We are so stoked at the amount of preorders that came through. We worked through a whole Saturday making the limited letterpress covers, and sold them in about 5 minutes. The amount of appreciation that happens for the handmade stuff always makes it worth all the work, and anyway… we wouldn’t have it any other way. In this day and age it’s great to get something that isn’t perfectly manufactured. I think I’m speaking for most of the young-ish population when I say that We’re tired of perfect.
Thanks to Gates for making this great video (again) of the process. I’m really glad we were able to capture it. Oh also, you can buy the e.p. HERE

Wild Hairs were a 3 piece from Long Branch NJ that played fast punk rock that, at times, reminds me a lot of the buzzcocks. The record was recorded in 1984 at “Little Apple” in Raritan NJ. Im posting a few of the standout tracks
