All songs written by Justin Heazlewood. Recorded between July-October 2004 at HumbleHouse Studios, Penrith NSW. Recorded and Mixed by Ken Heazlewood. First 100 copies contain Track 16 ‘Special Features’ which is a live track recorded at Mic in Hand comedy night, Friend in Hand Hotel, Sydney September 2004. 100 copies featuring special ‘coloured barcode’ but no live track were produced for Tripod tour of regional W.A. 2005.
The latest batch of albums contain a new version of Folkstar. The song has had about three different incarnations. In the original pressing of 100 I am speaking the vocals. In the next 500 I am rapping the vocals but without the presence of double bass (Pooglet 78″ Mix) in the current rendition I am rapping with double bass. (Pooglet With Strings Mix). The current album also includes a slightly remixed version of ‘Heart Song’ and an updated lyrics in ‘McRock.’ I wasn’t convinced that ‘Sick Puppes’ were still relevant so I updated it to ‘End Of Fashion’ as it happens, since then ‘Sick Puppies’ have made a massive comeback, and are probably more popular than ‘End Of Fashion’ anyway. Cover design by Tammy Nicholson. Published by Nan and Pop Records.
**You’re So Vague was removed from CD version of album due to non-existent copyright issues, but has been restored to iTunes.**
