I Had To Put Up Some Kind Of Fight

I guess now that everyone almost universally hates Japanther, now would be as good a time as ever to post the 7" from Ian Vanek's pre-Japanther band, The Teamsters. When I first reviewed this EP in Brushback years ago, I said that The Teamsters sounding like Geezer Lake was way better than The Nixons sounding like Pearl Jam, or something like that, to which Josh Vanek wrote back that he was pretty sure Ian had never even heard of The Nixons. This record isn't even all that good, I'm just posting it to show 2 Ton Bug that someone else thought of it first.

The mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files. They are now being hosted on my Vox page (which is accessible through any of the above listen-only links), along with the two other songs from the record which weren't included in the original post.

For those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original files.
