I saw Skyscraper at Gilman Street, opening for The VSS and A Minor Forest. Not a bad show. Skyscraper were great. The last song they played had each member finishing their bit and walking off stage, with only the drummer left at the end banging away. Finally she got up and left too. Awesome.

That show was approximately twelve years ago.

I have listened to this cassette from time to time over the years, and I have always enjoyed it.

My old roommate Andrew Bottomley told me that the name of his zine was partially inspired by this band. My least favorite memory of his zine was when we moved, as it had more possessions than both of us put together. We also moved in the middle of the summer.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, a cassette by Skyscraper.

Seriously. I never even thought I could recover my Skyscraper tape after the tape player ate it. I'm crying right now. You are my savior.

Now if you could upload the Rock Girl seven inch you'd be the Awesomest.

Happy to be of service. I happened to recently acquire (split infinitive or no) that particular record and I will put it up when I get a chance.

Do you remember Shove? They ruled and I saw them a bunch of times with Skyscraper. Any way you can upload the Skyscraper tape?

PS: I have a tape copy of the Shove/Torpedo split, and it's starting to warp. BOOO!
