Because we had so many completed tracks left over from the Puncture sessions, we knew that the next recordings would give us enough for two albums.
Shark Inferno likes to explore duality, juxtaposition, sets of two. 
The initial plan was to put the "new" songs on Tashirojima and the Puncture sessions songs on Okunoshima.
then came the fateful day when the studio informed us that they had lost the 7 extra Punture tracks.
Lost them.
Meanwhile... Paulie Danger got cancer.
Of course, the studio offered to re-record the tracks at no cost. We even manged to sneak in an eighth song to boot.
When we laid out the song arrangement on paper, we noticed that the first letter of each song almost spelled out something interesting. So we moved two Okunoshima songs over to Tashirojima, and added the track Riot Pussy
Some of the extra post-cancer tracks didn't quite fit with the Bunny-Kitty theme, and they ended up on the Contamination album. 
And for the first time ever... on one song... six-string guitar.

Rebuttal to Razorcake's unfair review of our album We Are Monsters


Rebuttal to Razorcake's unfair review of our album
We Are Monsters.

We are only now getting around to this because it's just not that important to us.

From the beginning lines of MP Johnson's review, it's clear he doesn't like grunge music 
("Even if you spent the early ‘90s worshipping bands from the Pacific Northwest and wearing the same flannel shirt every day until your armpits smelled like a pile of dead rats...").

SO WHY THE FUCK
IS HE REVIEWING A "GRUNGE" ALBUM?

That would be like asking me to review a country/western album or an opera. Ridiculous.

Okay, so we know that Johnson is going to try and not like this album, so it's really not all that surprising when he doesn't like it.

For some reason he picks a mindless, testosterone-fueled song like Stems (about a girl and her beautiful legs)... and then complains about the simple lyrics.

No mention of the brilliant and insightful lyrics of serious numbers like Welcome to Human Civilization or All The Things.

We checked some of Johnson's other reviews; apparently he doesn't like ANYTHING he reviews. While we certainly understand what it's like to be a cantankerous, malignant asshole, at least we are [more than] fair about the things we complain about, things that affect all of humanity.

We sent Razorcake a copy of our CD (at a cost of like €15 to us) in good faith. We didn't
necessarily expect a good review, but for some dumb reason we expected a fair one.
(Yeah, that was pretty foolish. We should have read our own lyrics!)


Fuck You Johnson,
and
Fuck You Razorcake. 
You obviously don't get it anyway.

The Puncture sessions were another example of Shark Inferno's manic energy as they blew out 25 songs in only5 days... a feat no other band could accomplish. 
The "extra"tracks would end up on the Tashirojima Okunoshima albums.
