Well, no, not exactly. It's just that I have so little time right now and this feels like a waste of it. I need to keep it short else I will never catch up.
Today's update is a pointless test press:
Pointless in the sense that it looks boring and isn't even for a record that I am that bothered about. But I picked it up because it was pretty cheap.

I guess this 7" is some kind of consolation prize.
Finally, here's a video I found on youtube. Interesting whether you know the band or don't:
