Matt Skiba/Kevin Seconds Split

Matt Skiba is the devilish lead singer of Chicagoís Alkaline Trio, one of the most beloved bands in the Windy City since Smashing Pumpkins. Asian Man Records released the first generation of Alkaline Trio records (Goddamnit!, Maybe Iíll Catch Fire, Alkaline Trio [7î collection]) before Vagrant reeled them in and threw back From Here To Infirmary. After successfully headlining the Warped Tour, Alk3 continue to gain fans and press accolades with gritty punk grooves spiced with Skibaís macabre lyrics, which make Halloween seem like a hopelessly romantic daily occurrence. ìThe City That Dayî is a two-minute quickie with Skiba playing all of the instruments on this recording, some not well as others, as he honestly writes in his liner notes, but all of his workings are from the heart...with a tiny skull inside.
