Lover! / LiveFastDie - Split

Artist: Lover! / LiveFastDie
Title: Split
Year: 2008
Label: Douchemaster Records
Tracks: 1.) Lover! "Booger In My Asshole", 2.) LiveFastDie "Sick As Shit Of Shit" 

After sparingly singing his own songs with Knaughty Knights in the early 2000s, former Reatards and Lost Sounds drummer Rich Crook officially became a frontman with a slew of recordings under the Lover! moniker in 2006. Rich played everything himself and in concert the "band" was a collection of whichever mid-south musicians didn't have anything else going on at the time. Then in 2010 Rich moved to Chicago and formed a more permanent group. 

This LiveFastDie track is one of the few singles tunes that didn't make it onto the Hit Stains comp.
