Quasi – Mailorder Freaks 7″
I know I posted another 7″ from the Kill Rock Stars Mailorder Freaks Club just a few weeks ago, but there are so many good ones to choose from that I just couldn’t help myself.
I first got into Quasi my sophomore year of High School (11 years ago! ahh!), which was a little odd because at the time I was pretty much only listening to Riot Girl, punk and queercore music. Quasi however is pure pop (or was at the time anyway), but I gave them an initial chance because Janet Weiss (of Sleater Kinney, who I LOVED when I was 16) was the drummer. I bought a CD of their album Featuring Birds and was hooked.
That same year I missed the boat by not buying a copy of this 7″, and regretted it for years. A few months ago though, I was surprised top find one used. It’s always wierd to hear songs by a band for the first time years after they were released.
(Side Story: I was listening to the side B song “Kiss the Snowman” the other day while Paul was at work and I got really lonely and sent him a crazy text message about how I missed him.)
Side A: Unto Itself
Side B: Kiss the Snowman
