mission accomplished

That completes the postings for the blunt catalogue.
If any links have gone dead just let me know in the comments and I'll get them re-upped.

blunt 017 - Pet Lamb - Tenderness

And here we are back where it all started with Pet Lamb, after them having been through the big label grinder. This was the last release on the blunt label. I've added an extra track to this post, a remix of Six String Goal by Decal that didn't feature on the cd.
