mammoth hunter: hot air mail



hot air press: all the way to glasgow from hartford, connecticut.

It's official. It is Friday afternoon, I've paid my telephone line rental, and I'm in good spirits.

Not only that, I just received the vinyl copy of
Mammoth Hunter's outrageously good single through the mail; and even better, it arrived in one piece! Just to confuse you, I've elected to post a scan of the inside of the box it came in - I'm pleased to see the guys at Hot Air Press are keen to play their part when it comes to recycling.

As mentioned previously from the sneak preview on One Base On An Overthrow, not only does it sound great, but the packaging too is aesthetically beautiful. I don't like to come across as too much of a butterfly collector, but - well - it's
damn pretty.

One thing I neglected to mention. My turntable is dead.
Kaput. If anybody out there can be of assistance, I'd really appreciate it if somebody could e-mail me a link to an decent MP3 of side 2, just so I can finally listen to "new track 2"
at long last. This is cutting edge reportage, brothers and sisters; either that, or I am simply so relieved I still have an internet connection to assail you from on a daily basis that I'm havering. My mouth is
running.

Hot air, people, hot air.

Damn, I didn't get me no pin!

Mind you I don't think the $5 would have even covered the air mail...

I got #86, but who's complaining!

Thanks, nate.

;)

Actually, now I think on it, sending anything metal overseas in these terrorist aggravated days may well be contentious.

Either that, or those f@ckers stiffed me!

Well, I don't own a pin either, if it's any consolation (though I do have the advantage of being able to ask for one in person).

ib said...

Now you're just showing off! (although it i some consolation)

I would like a pin, actually.

Hey, J!

Thanks for dropping by. Re: "friends press w/ special photo collage...#4 "

I followed the MySpace link (if that's right) but i don't really know my way around MySpace. I'm too much of a Luddite. So, I'm kind of lost there.

I DID check out the zine info for #12 on Hot Air Press; looks good! I may just order it. Hey! What do I have to do to get a Mammoth Hunter pin ? Issue #11 ?
