Anonymous asked: Hi, I'm a long-time fan of your blog, which I found because your url is a Brighter song. What is the history of the Smokey Lonesome track you posted? Just ripped from a 7"? Also, thanks for uploading the Brighter demos. Your photography is excellent, and your blog is also.
That rules, do I know you? If I don’t, then please talk to me! I can send you the split that the Smokey Lonesome track it is from, it’s from a split with Dear Neal. Old as time, and nobody knows where they are … it’s sad. I wish I knew something. You may have inspired me to dig into it yet again. I’ve tried a couple times and came up empty handed, lets hope that this time is different. It wasn’t ripped from a record or anything, it actually was on a burnt CD from the very early 00’s.You’re welcome for the Brighter uploads! That stuff needs to be out there and it bummed me out when it wasn’t available on YouTube. Last.fm blew it and ruined their radio service and now fully relies on YouTube for music. It’s weird and it sucks, but I’m trying to do my part to make it decent. Little dents, I guess. Thanks for the nice stuff, it always feels good when an anonymous message isn’t laden with hate and gouges.
