Release Text:
This was the original intent of our first record, …A Goon’s Best Friend. From being a 4 piece with only one guitarist to Dave Emmerson’s guest vocal on Change My Life, this is what this record has always sounded like to us. We began writing these songs a year before we finally recorded them. The reissued digital version of …A Goon’s Best Friend will include It’s a Disease, What’s the Use?, and One Step at a Time. All 3 of which were written and recorded at this time, but held off until our second record due to the total run length constraints of a 7 inch. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Marko had to leave the band. Virgil and Noam joined 2Minute Minor after the tracks were already recorded and mixed. They then learned their parts and rerecorded those tracks.
Seeing how there was talk among us that this record could very well be our only release ever, we were surprised at how well it was received, selling out quickly. We really felt that we had to do this repress, not just as a repress, but to release it as it’s true original version to honor it’s 5 year anniversary. New artwork complimenting the original artwork only seemed fitting as well. We are quite proud of it and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Plus, its high time Dave Emmerson gets his long awaited 2Minute Minor debut.
