Hi Carol and all who care (ALL of you, right? :) )

"amped" is one of the songs on the B-side to "underwhelmed", along with
"sleepover". Why they didn't put them on _Smeared_ I'll *never*
understand, they are two of the best songs sloan has ever written.
I'm not *positive* if it was released domestically or not.

If you look at the murderecords label, it looks like a) a bunch of bugs
;) or b) a bunch of crows. Now, as we all know, Chris Murphy has his BA
in English. A "bunch" of crows is completely incorrect. We don't say a
"bunch" of cows or lions.... So just as we say "herd of cows" or "pride
of lions" we also say "murder of crows". Yep. Murderecords.
The only other actual bit of information I can contribute at this point
is the fact that once they decided to call it murderecords, they were a
bit freaked that everyone would think it's a label with *scary* music on
it ;) ....Chris is a big fan of bloody macho boy movies (but only cause
he's not like that in real life.... ;) and so.... aw, who knows. :)

As to why they left out the second r, it's the same reason why nearly
all of the murderecords releases use My Bloody Valentine fonts - they're
all a bunch of losers.
Oh no...is everyone leaving now that exams are starting??? Bye to
everyone who is, good luck on exams, have a good summer, bla bla bla. :)
