Tools You Can Trust

Several years ago I was visiting some friends in Toronto, ON. That trip was an odd one that had me going from one end of town to another, duffel bag in tow the whole time. I had hit it off with someone but we were unable to do anything about it as she had a boyfriend. That made the weekend frustrating and strange, as you can probably well imagine. I was on my way out of town and stopped at a local record store to see what sort of offerings they had. There was a 7" bin full of cool looking records that were all priced at 2 Canadian Dollars, which at the time wasn't a whole lot. I sort of knew the guy working there and the records in that bin had obviously been there for a while so he gave them to me for half off. I will be the first to admit that there were a number of duds in that bunch, but I was pleasantly surprised by Tools You Can Trust. If you are unfamiliar with their work, I hope that you are now pleasantly surprised by them as well.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, 3 records from Manchester's own Tools You Can Trust.
