Other than Mike, from the One Thing That Still holds True blog, I might be the only person that still knows who Shotmaker is. Well, that’s definitely an exaggeration as Shotmaker was one of those bands that made a lot of waves in the 90s. This was especially true when you got a lot of stuff from distros like Ebullition.
Then first time I hear Shotmaker was when I got their split with Maximilian Colby. I was blown away by the intensity and spazziness of the music. Loud shrill vocals that would leave your ears bleeding was what I remember most from seeing them live.
“The Crayon Club” was their first full length lp and when I hear that it was releasing I got in contact with one of the local record shops here to get it for me. I believe I actually got my copy from either Ebullition or Lumberjack Distribution.
Anyways, I found a test press for this album and I jumped at it. The initial asking price was kinda high so I made a pretty decent offer instead. Thankfully it was decent enough for the seller.
No frills here. No exciting cover. Just knowing that I have this is good enough for me.
