CORTEZ THE KILLER - Lost LP - 2008

   Today, there will be no fanfare, art or long-winded stories of all the fun you missed (or caused). I'm very happy and honored to bring you the unreleased LP by Minneapolis' own CORTEZ THE KILLER. They were around for a few years and committed a few songs to tape and vinyl before calling it quits. Will and Ski from this band went on to form the completely unfuckwithable FROZEN TEENS, along with their friend, Wil. If you're a fan of FT, you will not be let down by CORTEZ THE KILLER. Here's Ski to tell you some more....

  "There's an old Chattanooga axiom that pretty much sums up CORTEZ THE KILLER, "The party ain't easy." We started in 2005 as an all Fargoan Minneapolis band, and despite a couple bass player changes, surprisingly stayed true to that. We drank a lot of wine, smoked tons of weed, and managed to write close to twenty songs and tour the country a couple of times in our short years of existence. The keepers were all recorded for this full length, and we had dreams of it being put out on this yadda yadda label and that yadda yadda label, but we barely made it to the final mixes and our physical and mental healths would not permit the band to continue any longer. So our record was never put out (although many people have said they wanted to do it, none actually have) and it always felt like it should. Greg said he'd post it, so here you go. Grab a bottle of Tisdale, smoke a joint, and enjoy!"

When you download this, you'll notice that the track listing runs #6-19. It's supposed to be like that. You're not missing any songs.

These fellas really know to execute some awesome "pop" songs. Sorry their LP didn't get to see its day in the physical punkmosphemre. Luckily for all of us Frozen Teens was able to pick up the torch.
