It's been a while since I've posted anything 'Snack-related, so here's the third Prisonshake 7-inch, which is potentially my favorite indie rock single of all time-- plus it's Scat One, which means, well, probably nothing I guess. I seriously own about a half-dozen copies of this, partially because when I'm out buying records I'm too stupid to remember which records back at the house aren't whipped, and partially because the individual playing card sleeves are all just slightly different enough to make me want to buy it whenever I see a copy. Plus, the second pressing has a little playing card sticker on the front (and even those are different colors, too), which makes it look even cooler. Not to mention the version that comes with the poker chips... ahh, what the hell.
The rippin' a-side is what makes this single such a keeper, of course, but it's the moody "Shook Like Roses" that really completes things here. Perfect as a Prisonshake b-side, "Shook Like Roses" would probably be the a-side for any of the above-average '80s jangle/psych bands you could name-- or in the case of The Leaving Trains, their only good song. I'm not gonna post the b-side here, though, thinking that maybe you'll go out and buy this yourself (despite the high quality being offered, copies are still relatively cheap and plentiful).
Since I bought my copies at various times, some of them came with different inserts, so I'm scanning all of them here... including an elephant picture from a newspaper that someone-- the original owner, perhaps-- stuck inside one of the copies. Hardy har har!
