In May of 2004, Virginia’s FORENSICS hit the road on a headlining tour in support of their debut full length Things To Do When You Should Be Dead Anyway. They didn’t come home until September. TEXTBOOK TRAITORS were along for a month of the journey and this split 12” is a celebration of a good time had by all.
To kick things off, FORENSICS offers up a previously unreleased, lengthy instrumental titled “Daytime Minutes” from the Things To Do… sessions plus “Pulling Rank” from the On A Bridge… session (previously unavailable on vinyl). On the flip side, Milwaukee’s TEXTBOOK TRAITORS fuse together “Diagram Of How To Take A Punch” (easily their longest song to date) and the scorching “Barbeque On The Grassy Knoll.”
The record comes packaged in a custom-printed anti-static shield with multiple translucent inserts featuring the art of FORENSICS’ Brent Eyestone. It is certain that this is the only record in your entire collection that will be packaged in such a manner.
