I was refering to the cd not the singles which does bear the subpop logo
afterall.  I've asked at a couple good record stores (eg Mom & pop) and
they haven't had it.  Glad I got mine at the show.

Well, at the New York show, I think it would have helped if they had gone
on a little earlier.  I totally appreciate the 4 band bills but the
headliners often get missed due to lack of staminaso early in the week.  If
Eric's Trip had the third slot there would have been way more people at the
New York show.  But I'm sure that's a booking thing and not something the
label has a lot of control over. Also, publicity was pretty minimal.  I
think a lot of people didn't know about it.

But I'm sure its also that they're used to bigger crowds in Canada.  Don't
think they're as big here.  (certainly many of my friends left before they
came on.)
