The second release by The Melniks, a cassette EP.

The tape didn’t have ‘sides’ so to speak, instead they had hand cut Archie comic labels glued to them.

Also included was an application to join Club Melnik and you received a free Melniks comic!

John left the band during 1992 to travel oversees and James was brought into replace him on guitar. Towards the end of the year Trevor also left and was coaxed to join another prominent BrisBand.

After a chance encounter at James’ shop 'Silver Rocket', Terry Devantier soon joined on Bass. The band then stumbled upon Trent McNamara in early 1993 at an impromptu Greenpeace gig where he was jamming with Leo from The Welcome Mat.
