    VINYL LOVERS:
    "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.

lyrics

‘Sobriquet’
By Amateur Blonde

A
I know, you’re a friend to me.
A G
Even though, you’re not friendly at all to me.
A
I knew you before I knew me.
A G
I knew that you would belong to me.

F7 G7
But now the foldaway’s
F7 G7 G#7/5 BEND
Where I choose lay my head down low!

C D7
Do you want to know, Do you want to know,
how they speak of you?
C D7
Do you want to know, Do you want to know,
The name they chose for you?

Am F7/9
Know! Do you really, really want to know?
What they’ve been saying?
Am F7/9
What your sobriquet... ... sobriquet is?

E7 F7/9
But now the foldaway’s
E7 F7 G7 G#5 BEND
Where I choose lay my head down low!

Am
I know, you’re NOT a friend to me.
Am F
And now we’re NOT friendly at all.
Am
I knew you before I knew me.
Am F
I now your name belongs to me.

E7 F7
But now the foldaway’s
E7 F7 G7 G#5 BEND
Where I chose to lay my head down low!

(Stops for solo x 4 bars)

Am F7/9
Know! Do you really, really want to know?
What they’ve been saying?
Am F7/9
Your sobriquet. Your sobriquet

E7 F7
But now the foldaway’s
E7 F7 G7 G#5 BEND END Am (whole note)
Where I chose to lay my head down low!
