grown-ups - e.t. phone home lathe

     yeah a lathe. i didn't even remember that i had this until i was looking back at my zines. apparently i stored it with them, well it is the size of a zine so. grown-ups are a calgary band and released this in early 2011 on the now abandoned scotch tapes label. limited to 50 and only 30 available for public purchase, i got the last one. sold out in an hour or something, guess i had good timing. i remember it taking a few months to get the record after purchase. now the owner of the label is gone, one day just vanished. hasn't been around for years now. wonder what he's doing. well he was releasing something by the white wires, which at the time i loved, so i was poking around the site and bought two lathes. the first one i can't remember who it was, but it was really limited too. i listened to it when i got it, i thought it was awful. so i just resold it to some guy who actually liked the band. i kept this one though since i actually did like the title song e.t. phone home, which for some reason is the second song on my lathe cut. the other song is about the band's favourite hangout, and it's not very good. i don't know why anyone makes lathes. anyone i've ever gotten was bent or/and poor sound quality. no exception here. they are kind of cool, i mean i did buy it. but if anyone reading this post wants it, leave a comment and it's yours.
