Picture and words from the Prison Art website:

“Shotgun blast evil surf from Syracuse, NY. Born in Lindsey’s beer-soaked attic when everyone would get together and play really loud and people would usually show up and get really shitfaced and a show would happen. Socio-political taunts bellowed over searing riffs and quick-snap time changes that hit the city like a tire iron to the ribs. It was everything we needed up there: dark, immediate, brash, honest. Then graduation rolled around and Lindsey moved to L.A. and that was the end of it. It’s our pleasure to release this first tape of songs compiled from a number sessions the band did last winter when we were all buried under 6 feet of snow and there wasn’t anything to do but make something that burned.”
