No Fun Intended Cover Album

Post by reboog711 »

For those that haven't seen the Facebook post yet:

July 16 we will be releasing NO FUN INTENDED, the first in 4 part series of 3 song, digital only EPs, of us covering some of our favorite songs. The first one will have "Attacking The Beat" - The Suicide Commandos, "Love Will Tear Us Apart" - Joy Division and "Shakin' Street - MC5....we had a blast making these, hope you will enjoy them just as much! Lot's of surprises ahead
They also had a cover image.

I guess we get a cover album split into four parts. I wonder if Dan played on any of these.

My intuition is to wait until all four are released in hopes of grabbing them in one shot (maybe w/ a bonus track or two).

Unless they had Justin re-record Dan's guitar parts, according to this article, I bet Dan played on some, if not all, of the tracks:

I would assume this is the album cover of the cover album :P you saw:

I like it; when I saw the image in my email and scrolled down real quick (I wasn't focusing on the image yet) I thought it was Kermit the Frog. :lol:

''Digital'' = meaning only available for download (after payment of course)???

Yeah, a new album of original songs sounds much better... can't wait for 2018.

I know it said 2014, but come on... they must mean 2018 or later : )

I'm so happy to see SA releasing new music. I'm not much of a fan of MP3s. I think for now I'm going to hold out to see if it's released in a physical form. Glad to see they are doing this though!!

I'll probably buy them as they're released on mp3, just because, but if they really want to be punk rock about this, they need to release these covers on vinyl!!! Many of these are short songs, so they could probably fit 3 or 4 on a 7" single (although it might require using 33rpm singles). I'd love to play those on my turntable (with mp3 downloads of course). Online only just feels like I'm paying for something that doesn't really exist.

I'd prefer a physical copy too, but if it's the only way to get them, I'll download.

I'd love originals, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not excited about these downloads; I dig the vibe and the songs they opted to cover. Also, the format doesn't bother me - I'm not attached to vinyl (or physical copies in general).
