Liner Notes: 

After 50/90 in 2018, the Catalytic Perverters went on a binge of creating new material. We basically just improvised for two hours during every session, sometimes quickly working out more complicated arrangements if we particularly liked an idea. From October to January, we came up with approximately 200 new compositions. As we work our way toward another 25 new songs, we've decided to put the brakes on a bit. So, I am reviewing recordings from the a fore mentioned time period and adding vocals to the ones that merit not being lost in the shuffle. This is one of those songs.

The music was improvised on January 11 2019. I wrote lyrics and dubbed the vocal today.

If you listen closely at the end, you can hear B-shift ask if we noticed that he dropped a stick.


you can't have favorites
no, you can't have favorites
you can not have favorites
unless you discriminate

don't go tearing it down
until you know what's holding it up

don't push the boundaries
until you know when enough is enough

don't test the limits
until you know when enough is enough

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Glad you rescued this one! The drive and the riff is really contagious. What a great hook too. Love the message and will heed the warning!
