“Hi everybody.” Though I haven’t seen The Break-Up yet, I hear Murry gets to offer that patented welcome to a 97’s show, and that the guys kick out the jams on “Timebomb,” “Salome,” and “Melt Show.” To commemorate the occasion New West has released a four-song Old 97’s EP on iTunes, Old 97’s Live EP. The sampler includes the guys’ three Break-Up tracks plus “Ivy,” a.k.a., “Ivy’s Got A Boyfriend (Problem),” which is a rarely heard chestnut from the band’s earliest days. Check it out!
Also, for at least the past two years, the question most frequently answered with the word “no” here at Hit By A Train, has been “Can I get Old 97’s ringtones?” That looks like it’s about to change, as New West will likely be releasing some 97’s ringtones in the near future. Stay tuned for details and check back soon for more!
