This project was recorded in late 1977 - early 1978 at Blackberry Way on an eight track 1/2 inch machine. The band wanted to make noise regarding releasing a 7" with nine songs on it. Unfortunately, the volume had to be reduced by 9db to get all the music on the disk and a price was paid in terms of sound quality.

Released by Twin/Tone Records April 17, 1978. It was the first Twin/Tone release and was co-released with two other projects (all three were 7" and on red vinyl.) Only the first pressing of 2,500 was on red vinyl. The second and third pressings (2,500 + 1,000) were on black vinyl. The 7" jackets were designed 1/4 inch to large and couldn't go through an automatic assembler. The Twin/Tone staff (and bands) had to glue all the jackets and insert the records before shipping them to stores. This EP sold 5,794 copies. It is "out of print." Note: "Pre-historic Jaws" and "Chemistry Set" show up on the 1992 Suburbs compilation "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Suburbs Have Left The Building"


The original analog master tapes were transfered to digital in March of 2003. We have added the two songs from the "World War III" single and the two Suburbs songs from "Big Hits III" for a total of 13 songs for this transfer. You can purchase a copy for $15.00 burned to a custom CD from Twin/Tone Digital.
