    @jeffradick what are you on about? just like you can prefer a certain album to another album by the same band and so on, you can prefer AUGUSTINES to Pela aswell. both great groups with a similar sound. i personally prefer AUGUSTINES. Never knew i was crazy.

    Anytown Graffiti is such a fantastic album. I wish these guys hadn't split. I prefer this sound over We are Augustines.
