On Record Store day 2018, Burger Records will be shining a light on this reclusive guitarist and will be releasing a 10-inch of unreleased recordings from 1988-1991.

Tales from the Toilet will be out April 21 at shops doing the RSD thing. Before then, you can check out Burger Records here and check out an early version of "Motherfucker" below, right now!
