I remember my 2nd semester of college. I moved off campus to one of the student apartments across the street. I had a two bedroom apartment with my new friend Casey Woodling. He was your typical clean cut emo/indie guy in a button down shirt and vintage corduroy pants, who would usually be carrying around some book by either James Joyce or Henry Miller. At the time I was listening to lot of hardcore and crust punk, He was into a few other things.
One of those things were The Promise Ring. I am not sure that I would have ever admitted to liking The Promise Ring when they first came out, but there was something about this 7″ that really did it for me. Casey and I must of seriously played this record around 1000 times. We would listen to it again and again, and we would get so amped. (Yes, we were lame)
The A side, “Tell Everyone Were Dead” was the one that really did it for us. I am not sure why, but we would just listen to it again and again screaming out the lyrics.
I couldn’t find a YouTube clip that had the 7″ recorded back to back, but I did find a site where you can download it.- Twerps!
