THEE MAKEOUT PARTY - Jungle Cruise / Bittersweet Bubblegum 7"
After only few releases, THEE MAKEOUT PARTY called it quits way too soon. They toured a lot after the full lenght „Play Pretend“ came out on Recess Records in 2008, but part of the band started BURGER RECORDS in Anaheim, CA, other parts moved on and started solo projects or helped out other bands. I met Daniel Bush (one of the songwriters in MOP) when he played drums for NOBUNNY at the Euro Tour, and he told me about the idea to do something with these MAKEOUT PARTY songs that were unreleased. I am a big fan of the band, but I was unsure about the thoughts of the other bandmembers about this project, so we discussed this a bit over the internet. Dan explains the whole thing like this:
"These songs are from THEE MAKEOUT PARTY‘s "lost" 2nd album. Originally recorded in my garage by Patrick Haight and myself with more tracking done in a school facility in Sacramento. It was finally finished long after the band stopped playing together, in much the same way the other recordings were. With me goin‘ over unfinished songs or sloppy takes myself. Lee is unhappy with this version, I was unhappy with the old one and didn't want to abandon these songs. The tape was unfinished, unmixed and barely released. But who cares? I'm trying not to... Enjoy the songs, if you wanna hear more email me..."
As you can see the cover art is b/w, and the record comes with a set of 12 crayons, so you can color the sleeve just like you want to...
