about

The EP you are about to listen to is the retrospective soundtrack to the amazing true story of three tree-climbing friends and their adventures at the dawn of handheld gaming. It all started when no-one could afford the all-new Nintendo Game Boy - they were kids and their combined powers and paper round salaries would not allow it. They would have to wait for Christmas or a birthday - whatever happened first. Sie cut the Game Boy from his mum's Argos catalogue (not actual size) and glued it to the back of some cereal box cardboard. The next day, Wullie and Muddy did the same. As they climbed higher and higher playing imaginary Tetris on tiny Game Boy placebos, the sun set on Woodlands Drive. True elevation was theirs - they could see it all from the tree-top.

This digital download now includes seven bonus tracks recorded around the same time as the EP:

7 It's Like Boo!
8 Mega Man Is My Hero
9 One Hour Song
10 Radiation Vibe (Fountains Of Wayne cover)
11 Bad Sects (Cursive remix)
12 Ben (Michael Jackson cover)
13 Gummi Bumpons
