When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.
One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

SB001 is a split between Los Angeles’ Criminal Hygiene and Washington DC’s Dagos. Scuzzy jams for the slacker set.
SB002 is the new EP from Los Angeles’ resident grunge gods, Washing Machines.
