Five or six years after their first 7" and Halo of Flies were still releasing fierce-sounding records, as evidenced by this 1991 single. Now, six years might not sound like a long time, but what are the chances that your favorite new band today will still be putting out their A-Grade material six years from now? If they're anything like the washed-out fake-indie crap that shows up in my in-box every day, my guess is "no fucking way".
This also happens to be my favorite Halo of Flies 7" sleeve, representing HoF's "Mod" phase or something (maybe it's because they're Mods is why you can barely hear the guitar solo on "Tired & Cold"). I don't know if Henry Owings (see this, by the way, it's great) is going to come in here and give a nod to Haze's particular graphic design on this one, but I thinks he oughta.
