If you've come this far - you should probably just purchase all the Shellac 45's

A correction for the notes above: it's not Steve Albini's studio in the b&w pull out photograph, it's Todd trainer's apartment.

This is the most interesting 7" i've ever purchased. The black & white photo inserted into the front of the folded paper sleeve makes it stand out from all the other records in my collection.

The insert with the legend (which the drawing underneath the photo depicts), is something you can lose yourself in for awhile. This is a very unique / and great sounding 7". A very cool release from the legendary Steve Albini / Shellac.
