‘Thankyou’s, Credits, and Ramblings’
Hey there, Chris here, the voice of Victory Gin, I think I speak for the entire band when I say, thankyou very much for purchasing this cd. I seriously am very grateful. Because if from this we gain you as a possible fan that would be brilliant and hopefully we will be successful in gaining loads more fans and then eventually this EP will be really rare and expensive at which point we’ll release a load more because just because its old and there’s not many doesn’t mean it should be ridiculously expensive. Anyway, getting way ahead of myself. We really hope you enjoy what you hear. I would go on about how original and brilliant we are, but one you may have already given me the money for this and two I don’t really see the point or truth in that. The truth is we are 4 guys who haven’t made up any new chords*, or any new words, but used existing words and chords to try and express what we think and feel about and of course what we think sounds cool; which hopefully is where you may find something you think you haven’t heard before. We can only hope that you enjoy the sounds and that our combinations and arrangements of over-used chords and over-used words conjure up some interest in your very noble ears. Your interpretations are as important as anyone else's, we hope that they relate to ours. If you like or hate anything, I’d love to hear it, so email us on email@example.com.
*I forgot there’s kind of a makeshift chord in the intro of One and the same, my apologies, props to Jim.
