Ten Grand / Meth and Goats (2004)
Side A: X-Tacy Of Desire
Side B: Dope Tantrum / She Murdered Everything In Sight
Label: Init Records
Encoding: 48 kHz / 24 bit, V0 MP3
After months of putting off an inevitable order from Init Records I was finally able to gather enough couch change to snag a handful of 7” records and two LPs. I’ve had a rip of this 7” for quite some time, but just like The Aasee Lake record I transferred awhile back I wasn’t satisfied with the quality.
I’m happy to extend my collection of Meth and Goats material, especially after being introduced to their full length “Attack From Meth and Goats Mountain” a few months back. But Ten Grand’s, posthumous, final recording is what really shines here. Matt Davis’ unexpected death in 2003 has remained one of the most tragic loses for the midwest hardcore scene.
