    More dull exercises in willful tunelessness from indie-rock's biggest douchebag Steve Albini.

      sounds killer, especially for being almost 30 years old. highly recommend buying this 7 inch.

        My copy has a kind of mould effect on the cover and label (side A especially) and I've never been able to work out whether it was intentional!

          I owned this once before and it had the cover with the lettering and background as shown in picture above. I recently bought this again and it has the word 'Shellac' over a blue and purple background and 'Ridet Gesture a pictorial history ' printed at an angle. Is this an interesting variation or what?

            side note: the actual "Shellac" lettering was printed with rootbeer.
