This is the back cover of a split 7" between I Exist and Phantoms, I took the photo. If I had known at the time that it would be used for anything more than a snapshot I would have put more effort into it. Design and layout by Patrick Galvin who also drew the front cover, which can be seen here: http://patrickgalvin.tumblr.com/post/1643087385/heres-something-i-drew-up-a-while-ago-that-ive
Just south of Brisbane is a lovely place where dreams come true - Wet 'n' Wild. While touring together in March 2010, Canberra sludge merchants I Exist and Sydney pseudo thugs Phantoms visited this magical place and decided to immortalise it in song. Recorded in one afternoon with Lachlan Mitchell between visits to Sizzler and a Soulfly concert, the result is Bad Romance, 2 songs from each act and all named after Wet 'n' Wild rides.
The 7" will be released January 14th 2011, with a pre order available from December 6th.
A track from the I Exist side 'Mammoth Falls' is up now too on www.myspace.com/iexistmusic
Here are the original blog posts from that trip to Queensland.
