    Limited Edition Amateur Blonde 12" Vinyl (CDs in image no longer available )

    "I spared no expense with the vinyl production. It ended up being more expensive, but I wanted to meet everyone in the chain of vinyl production and learn about vinyl production and artistry. After months of careful recording, editing, mixing, the mastering was done by Adrian Morgan at Timeless Mastering in Brooklyn, NY. Following that, the 'Lacquer Master' was cut by none other than Ray Janos at Sterling Sound in Manhattan. Janos cut many of our favorite records, including works by Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Ramones, The Clash, The Strokes, Yo La Tengo, and the Rolling Stones. Side A and B lacquer masters were sent to RAINBO RECORDS in CA (RIP after 80 years in 2019). Maarten Kleyne gate-fold art.

    - 180 gram black vinyl with 4 color disc labeling, track times and durations.
    - 4 color 'gate-fold' cover with recording descriptions and special thanks.

Time moves on
Kills what we know you wanted to do.
Time is a stone.
Rolling away from you
G#m B (x 2)
With no regard. Ahhhh.

Time is the man
digging a hole for things you planned.
Time has an edge on you
A blade to take you away
G#m B
With no regard x 2

B E G#m F# + B E G#m F# E
We move over
For a safer point of view
There’s no more question.
We know all the answers to
Pay attention to
The things we did for you
When you went into

Pay attention to
Things they did to you
When you went into
