Release - SNFU "Real Men Don't Watch Quincy" ep

In the fall of 1990, after SNFU had broken up, Chi PIg received a phone call from an American named Todd who wanted to know if Chi would be interested in doing an SNFU single.

The "Life of a Bag Lady" ep was a bootleg, but it was a bootleg with permission," explains the singer. "The only reason I did it was because I thought the early songs should be heard. I did all the artwork on that thing." In fact, "Life of a Bag Lady and "This is the End" had previously been released on the "She's Not on the Menu" single. "Strip Search" and "Grunt, Groan, Rant and Rave" were the songs from "It Came from Inner Space". Curiously both songs on the B-side would play backwards.

The singer received a lump sum for the ep and the Belkes weren't happy about it.

Found on page 121 of Chris Walter's book "SNFU...What No One Else Wanted to Say".

The songs on the single are: 01. Real Men Don’t Watch Quincy
02. Strip Search
03. Grunt, Groan, Rant & Rave
04. Life of a Bag Lady
05. This is the End

There was 700 pressed. The liner notes had a complete discography and band history up to 1989 consistent with this being a piece that came out after the band's first break up.

NoMeansNo "Oh, Canaduh" ep

NoMeansNo cover the Subhumans and DOA respectively. This was released on John Yates' label Allied recordings and writing royalties were donated to the Prisoners Rights Group. Victoria not Vancouver was written in the vinyl outro of the record.
