'Sum Total Of Insolent Blank' - Santa Sprees
Released July 17, 2020

All songs written and performed by Santa Sprees (Anthony & Kazuko Dolphin). Recorded upon Hillside Bamboo, Dartmouth between January and June, 2020. Cover paintings and design by Anthony Dolphin.

The Anglo-Japanese band Santa Sprees have been advancing the art of unpopular song since 1994. Making questionable progress from the low-skilled, no-fidelity, no wave of their earliest cassettes to the largely futile primitive avant-bubblegum of today, releasing nine collections to date on a trail of defunct labels and media.
