Hostile Heyday were a Boston outfit that seemingly recorded under a whole bunch of different monikers (Hollow Heyday, Headless Heyday); I remember this 45 hung on the wall at Brass City Records for quite some time (along with all the other colored vinyl singles), and it was pretty much a curiosity back then because the few people who bought a copy loved it and would talk about it, yet nobody knew what to make of it because you couldn't easily figure out the band's name and the song titles just by looking at it.
I happen to still own two copies of this record for some reason, even though I don't own any of H.Heyday's other records-- although there's a copy of the Hollow Heyday LP I've seen floating around that I'm thinking about getting. In any case, this single sounds like Phantom Tollbooth gone Dischord to me, either that or a whole bunch of bands from '96 on Jade Tree and so forth that have no clue that Hostile Heyday completely owned their shit a decade earlier.
