Sometimes on an airbreak, I might go on just the slightest little tangent, and I wind up saying something so stupid, or umming or uhhing like I just got hammered in the forhead, but I suppose it disappears from this mp3 archive soon enough. It would surely be different were I to do the same on a piece of lovingly crafted vinyl. So, it's no wonder some bands feel such shame over their very first record, when a little youthful indiscretion from a mere recordgeek greenness led so many punks to pack as many songs on seven inches as quickly as possible. I, too, remember thinking a two-song 45 was such a ripoff compared any HC 7" with six or more songs on it. More was better, right?

Well, I understand the shame some folks have about their first record, and while perhaps the first 7" of Sacto's Los Huevos--an extremely important band to me during my more impressionable years (and one of the three bands that really made me understand the appeal of this so-called garagepunk (whereas before, I'da said "Phooey! I'm not into drag-racin' and PBR-guzzlin'!"))--smacks a little bit of an exuberant young economy-obsessed band, there's one song that shall always live on in my mind as an absolutely righteous anthem....Altogether now: CHICKEN POT PIE!!!

If any band ever records a cover of this, will you please invite me to the studio for this? I can give you a decent Ed Hunter backup vocal impression. No, please tell Scott that this is not at all shameful!
