Lafayette Blues

1 Nov, 1998

220px-Lafayette_BluesLafayette Blues is the band’s second single. White and Dave Buick hand-paint copies to sell at a release party, which later become collectors’ items.

We pitched up six dollars for them. I remember me and Ben were talking, Aw that’s too much! No-one’s gonna buy it at the Gold Dollar for six dollars…It’s funny stuff – thinking no-one’s gonna buy them for 6 dollars, now they’re going for 2700!
