COMFORTABLE ON A TIGHTROPE have just released their very first 7" ! And it's been a very eagerly anticipated event. One side FORMER BULLIES (who's last 7" came about something like 6 years ago, like before I was even born). The other side WAITERS (who've really never had a 7" before). It's a beautiful & impressive thing, and is available from their online shop and from GOOD GRIEF. Expect a NISSENENMONDAI/WAITERS split on the horizon! YES!
