4 songs immaculately recorded in the late 80's by the Buffalo NY band Man Against Mauve.

We had submitted "I Hate Girls", "Anything", "Canada" and others to WBNY, but these never got there. in fact, we never released anything on vinyl. Why not? We were not very bright. Anyhow, you know the drill. In-fighting, etc. All was lost by the time these were finished. Still, I think we were a very good, if tense, group of players.

It never occurred to me that we just never fit a solid demographic. Too pop to be funk, too funk to be MOR, too theater to be anything. Too black to be white, too white to be black.

Anyhow, please enjoy and consider ponying up some do-re-mi.
