you have no idea how much trouble it was to get this bank draft. it took 2 days of me and amber calling and going to every bank in this bumfuck town before we finally found one who knew how to do an international bank draft, the required currency to order a lathe cut record run from mr peter king of new zealand.
thats a reduced quality image of what the cover of the record will be. we’re having 70 made and about 60 are sold. preorders are OVER and this record will not be available through retail or distros. the records also come with a bonus DVD-r.
here are links to listen online with the streaming player or download the mp3 of both sides:

the first record on kryptonite was teenage trash by last sons of krypton. roy actually had to call the pressing plant and stop a different record from getting made, LSOK with jamie evolution on vocals. originally it was supposed to be entirely different songs on the record.
this one was gonna be the first on side b, h-bomb. the announcer at the beginning is jamie with the tape pitch sped up.

Pre EvolutionsSmuts we were a band with all the same members (Roy Oden-guitar, Jamie King-vocals, steve smut-bass, bradx drums) called the Dropouts. When we first started we had only 5 songs and were asked to play at a party out in the country. The problem was that people started showing up before the kids parents left town, so there we were setting up in his backyard, and when the van showed up with 7 half barrels of beer the parents decided not to leave town.
There was about 15 cars, our band, and a van full of half barrels driving around backwoods Wisconsin caravan style looking for a place to host our underage drinking party. Driving around the outskirts of Rootin Tootin Newton we noticed a large group of people gathered at an out of business bar. It was some sort of city picnic/wedding and there were well over 200 people there.
An agreement was struck up between the beer owners and the event planners to tap 3 of the kegggs if they would let our band play. The event organizer looked suspiciously at our tiny radio shack PA and shitty practice amps and asked us if we could play any Metallica or Sabbath. We assured him we could and set up on the outdoor paved area where all the people were.
We played the same 5 songs over and over for about an hour before people caught on. they kept asking us to play something they knew and we kept saying we would right after a few more songs.
fast forward a couple hours of playing the same 5 songs and jamie king stage banter like “all we want is another vietnam, VIETNAM IN THE USA!!!” or “lets play the dating game, who here between the ages of 14 and 50 wants me to fuck em?” at one point he fell over and couldnt get his arms out quick enough so he landed right on his face which was all cut up.
it was down to a core crowd now of about 75 or so heavy drinkers, and they invited us inside if we would finally play some music they knew. we set up inside and did the same 5 songs over and over again for another couple hours until they finally shut the power off on us during a particularily bad cover of louie louie.
steve smut says:
One of my finest Wisconsin memories…
It was almost 10 years ago but I remember it like it happened yesterday….
I still can’t believe that we managed to convince the wedding party (that was going on in the bar’s banquet hall), that we would play Zerplin and Sabbath in exchange for free food…
30 second songs like “Jacking Off In My Backyard” and “Baby Gimme Some Head” OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN to a wedding audience that kept begging for Ozzy!
If I remember right, that was the reformed Dropouts first “show”. All of our cords and 1 watt amps got soaked with beer and I kept get electrocuted everytime I touched the bass strings!!!
Oh yeah Brad…. I remember I bailed your ass out of jail and you still owe me like $150 or something.
It would be cool if you can dig up that turd, ‘cos I remember at the end of the audio tape you can actually hear them turning off the elctricity and kicking us off the “stage”… very funny…
