Fat History Month is one of the best bands coming out of the Massachusetts rock scene, as is also evidenced by their Hidden Temple tape that we have in stock.  "Sad History Month" is a monolith of a track, a high water mark for the band--quiet, distorted, harsh, full of static and reminiscent of the most somber and depressive moments of Eric's Trip and The Microphones, a track to be listened to over and over.  (Check out this review from Pitchfork!)  As with the cassette, this was recorded at the ever-mystical Sex Dungeon.

 

Flip-side is My Dad with "Tom Waits For No Man," with a very midwestern sounding song that eschews the whispering of "Sad History Month" for screaming.
