Urban Mayhem

The first time I met Scotty was outside the Feedback on King st Newtown arguing about who was better Slapshot or Negative FX.I always said Slapshot.And I will still say Slapshot to this very day.This was all around summer '98 they played a few shows , shared a room together at Club 111 , travelled to Newcastle and Melbourne with us a lot.
On one particular trip to Newcastle when they were playing at the Black Box I slipped a tape to the soundman and said hey hit record on these guys.And that recording ended up as this 7". Jay put it out ... not cause it was the most fantastic music or recording ever but cause they're mates.And that was .... and wish it still is ... the reason great records and bands are made.FUN. Not fucking myspace or eye makeup or your sisters jeans or record deals
