* It’s rumored that Colin recorded his vocals for the LP as a bit of a joke, poking fun at the more contrived “singing” of emo bands at the time (comparisons have been made between the LP and 7”). It was also rumored that Jason Teisinger (of Palatka/Belladonna records) planned to re-release the LP remixed with the corrected vocals, but this dispelled by Jason himself. Another rumor says that the flaws in the LPs were a mistake made by the pressing plant, but the band didn’t mind (probably getting a deal on mis-pressed lps) and decided to keep them anyway. Another theory is that it was on purpose - the popping and crackling was supposed to make it more like the repercussion and emo stuff they were mocking. rumors…

    "Katahdn" must be one of the best emo songs of its time

    I love this band. A while back I managed to find the Moonraker/Don Martin Three split for only $15.00, and considering how rare it is, it was quite a deal.

    I still have my original press!! I LOVED these guys... My screen name is "fused" from Fuse Records in St. Augustine. I met Colin there. "She whistled the tune, her lips exploded into a smile...Connection!" So amazing! One of my favs for sure.
