Dan Sartain - Too Tough To Live Demo/Bootleg Cassette Thing /30
This thing is weird. So as the story goes, this is Dan's next album. Some guy went to see a Dan Sartain show and Dan gave the guy a cassette copy of his new record. He then supposedly gave this guy permission to bootleg a small amount of them. I'm not totally sure I buy that story, but the guy did only charge for the blank tape and shipping, so he certainly didn't make any money off of this. Kind of bizarre. Anyway, the album itself is a different direction for Dan. it's 13 songs but only 20 minutes long. They're fast downstroke heavy punk songs. Some of which are great, some of which are over so fast you almost don't notice them. To me, it would be weird if this ended up being the whole new Dan Sartain record. Seems like more of an EP appetizer than a main course full length.
