This is a series of LPs that are contain unreleased live (and
sometimes demo) material that are packaged and presented as
a tribute to the great 70's and early 80's bootleg LPs that
my friends and I used to buy. Labels like TMOQ (Trademark of
Quality) used to pump out LPs that looked like these by the
truckload- blank white labels in white cardboard sleeves with
an insert style cover, they were amazing! Later on bootleggers
got fancy and started doing professional printed sleeves and
stuff, which were cool too but nothing beat the vibe of these
early bootleg LPs, so I wanted to try and bring that back with
this "It's a Fuckin' Boot" LP series. If only I could
find a way to make the cellophane tape I use to tape the inserts
on the sleeve yellow and crack so it looks like it will in 20
years I'd be set! But in time they will get that look, so hold
