Shotmaker ep

This is one of Shotmaker's first releases. A close friend of theirs, Daragh Hayes, released this on a label he did that only released this one record. The label was called Kung Fu Enterprises and was named after Daragh's love of the Kung Fu series as a kid. This is my favourite Shotmaker release. The record had the following songs on it:

1. I Say
2. Nick's Question
3. In Betweens
