DNRC014 | 7″ | 2003 | DELETED

Cruns, hailing from Boston, made the extraordinary decision in 2003 to stop listening to any of their New England counterparts and start making noise. This, their first release, is the result. Equal parts barn-door whinny and shoe-gazing abandon, “Extra Hair” sees the band in top form, delivering the one-two in the from of verse, chorus, verse, instrumental and repeat verse to fade. B-side “We are the Cruns” packs no punches and pulls no favours. Nose-bleeding for the single-minded. Absolutely no compromise went into the recording and packaging of this sadly-deleted release.
